A collection of ceramic work inspired by life on the Gulf Coast. Dawson Morgan grew up in Mobile, spending a lot of time on the water. Life, jobs, and family have moved her around a great deal. But, she is now settled in to her original roots, and happy to be back to where her heart has always been. She has a reverent love and respect for this water. All the pieces are stoneware and finished in a matte white glaze. Some of the works will flow like waves on a calm day, others are intended to portray a more violent yet beautiful conflict such as a crashing wave, or a bulkhead in a storm. These 20-25 bowls and centerpieces will have a range from 7” to 24”. Dawson Morgan’s work in general is hand built with a dramatic display of light and shadow within the piece. Often the shadows are more important than the piece itself.
