About the Artist

Georgia Morgan has been making jewelry since 1990. Since she has studied metalsmithing and polymer clay techniques with masters of these arts, she does not claim to be self-taught. Images of her work have been published in The Crafts Report and 400 Polymer Clay Designs (Lark Books).

 

 

Artist's Statement

 

Before I worked in jewelry, knitting and knotting (macramé) provided the challenge of being creative within a formal structure. Knitting and later, gemstone bead designs offered an opportunity to work with patterns of both color and texture, but I found the palette of colors limiting until I discovered polymer clay. This is a pigmented synthetic moldable material which cures to a flexible solid. The color patterns are the result of techniques derived from those used by lampwork glass
artists in the construction of canes for millefiori.
Working in polymer allows unlimited space to explore the synergy of color, pattern, and texture.
All of the polymer beads and components in my work are handmade in my studio.

My main artistic influences have been the Art Nouveau and Art Deco movements, and the work that resonates the most with me combines organic elements in a geometric framework.

Although I generally have a plan when I sit down to work, I hardly ever know what will happen after it is executed—the wabi-sabi combination of materials before me in the studio is a continuing adventure--I have a hard time throwing out things-that-might-be-useful-someday (every member of my family will attest to this), and new designs regularly emerge from bits and pieces that have been lying around the studio (click to see). Some of them are favorites of mine.
