Crystal Morey earned a BFA in Ceramics from the California College of the Arts in Oakland, California.
Crystal explains her work by saying, “My intention is to explore human emotion, and its relationship with the environment. I want to study the tenuous, symbiotic balance between human necessities and the health of our forests, oceans, mountains, and deserts. I want to combine my love for sculpting and making with more concrete knowledge of botany, ecology, and environmental studies. I want to investigate ideas of man vs. nature and our destruction of the earth. I want to explore the psychological aspects related to the disintegration of nature and its effects on psychosis, body language, and attitude towards life. In my work I want to reveal the delicate relationship of humans to the earth and the balance that is needed in order for life to continue.”
