Emily Bender Morrison
Emily is a Brooklyn-based multimedia artist. Through a playful exploration of materiality and a sense of humor, she pursues the vulnerabilities and intimacies that startle and enrich our humanness. Emily holds a BFA in painting from Pratt Institute. She loves swimming in the ocean, always carries hot sauce in her purse, and currently works as a studio tech at UrbanGlass.
Her pieces are created using multiple kilnforming techniques, incorporating assorted textures using frit and sheet glass. Other components such as silk, thread, and found objects juxtapose the sharp and delicate connotations of glass. These dishes are a special place to rest your favorite pieces of jewelry, or can just keep you company. Each piece is one of a kind.
