Morris is widely recognized for his sculptures that explore themes related to archaeology, anthropology, and the natural world. These subjects are united by the artist’s interest in myth and ancient history, and his understanding of nature. Morris is an experienced hunter and outdoorsman, and these activities are reflected in his art work. Scoop is inspired by ancient and tribal utilitarian pottery forms. The characteristic matte, acid-etched surfaces of Morris’s vessels tone down the hardness and shininess of the glass without the loss of luminescence.
