Monday Motivation - William Morris - Glass Artist

Today's Monday Motivation features William "Billy" Morris. His work reminds us that things are not always what they seem. Yes people, what you're looking at here is glass. William Morris is a uniquely talented glassblower who can transform a delicate, fragile medium into something that it isn't: rough, solid and full of texture.  His pieces resemble artifacts from an ancient past, beckoning us to learn more about where they came from.  I encourage you to take a closer look at some of Billy's work and as you go about your week challenge yourself to look beneath the surface and see the true beauty of the things around you.
