About the Art:
About My Work: I hand fabricate jewelry inspired by a macro lens view of the world. I blend organic shapes, textures, and geometrics, working in silver and gold with pearl and cut and rough gemstone accents. Artist’s Bio: Rachel Morris balances a day job is as a business consultant with her not-so-secret identity as an artist/educator with 20+ years’ experience in bench jewelry and fabrication. She holds a Master in Teaching and has studied metal arts under John Cogswell, Jayne Redman, Joanne Conant, Kate Wolf, Victoria Lansford, Cynthia Eid and others. She enjoys a constantly evolving approach to her own work, and bringing the joy of metalworking to others through teaching. She has been a Halstead Design Challenge and Art of the Northeast finalist, and displays in galleries and teaches on both the east and west coast. She is a past president of the Creative Metal Arts Guild of greater Portland (Oregon). While she has dabbled in numerous other media, she always returns to metal work, which she describes as her “life’s breath.”
