Harry Morgan is an emerging artist and designer, whose work is known for its unusual use of materials and experimental approach to traditional processes.

Glass is an alien material. It has unusual behaviours and paradoxical properties. I was quite young when I was introduced to glass processes in high school. My teachers had little experience with the material, so I enjoyed their playful investigations and the anticipation of opening the kiln.

Referencing histories from ancient Venetian glassblowing to Brutalist architecture, his work challenges the physical and cultural meaning of his chosen medium.

His monumental sculptures are the result of painstaking experimentation. He uses traditional studio and industrial processes in order to position materials such as concrete and glass in such a way as to question the fragility of glass.
