Glassblower.Info Amazon book William Morris: Man Adorned by Blake Edgar, James Yood, William Morris, Robert Vinnedge ISBN 0295981849William Morris: Man Adorned
By Blake Edgar, James Yood, William Morris, Robert Vinnedge

n this book, artist William Morris celebrates this ancient and universal human quality and continues his exploration of the themes of origin and myth that permeate all his work.
At first glance, these glass sculptures signal a striking departure from Morris's oeuvre of canopic jars, animal vessels, assorted artifacts, and imaginative burial installations.
Here Morris depicts the people only imagined before. He has put flesh on the bones, and covered the bodies with costumes, jewelry, headdresses, and tattoos.
These figures spring forth full of vibrant life in the present, rather than recalling a distant past.
