Crystal Morey uses porcelain to communicate the interconnectedness and balance between humans and the natural world. Her work explores stressed ecosystems, including the endangerment of species, using traditions of realism, craftsmanship and art historical porcelain. Her goal is to create a contemporary, science-based narrative that reminds us of the natural world and our relationship with it. Morey has a bachelor of fine arts degree in ceramic sculpture from the California College of the Arts as well as a master of fine arts degree from San Jose State University. She currently lives in Oakland, California, and exhibits her work regionally, nationally and internationally.
