The Physicality of Glass

California glass artist William Morris is world-renowned for his uncanny ability to make glass look like something it isn't, be it stone, wood, bone, or leather. In this 2013 clip, we see the artist at work and listen to him tell us, in his own words, why is he drawn to glass and how he approaches working with it.

Although my work is shaped by the influences of contemporary life and technology, it contemplates fragments from the past; reinventing the narrative of the hunt, stories and rituals which continue to live on in the artifacts which remain.
