Paige Lizbeth Morris considers memories of her adolescence with her present day identity to tell stories about love, loss, and regret. She works experimentally; using processes based off of traditional mold making and kiln casting techniques to create works that reveal the power of objects and activate familiar feelings. She is curious about the media’s portrayal of women in intimate settings and how those projections effect our own perception of romance. Paige received her BFA in Glass from Tyler School of Art in 2012. She has studied at Pilchuck Glass School, Penland School of Crafts, The Studio at Corning Museum of Glass, and Pittsburgh Glass Center under scholarship. Paige is a recipient of the Jack Malis Glass Award and Temple University’s Creative Arts, Research and Scholarship Grant in support of a solo exhibition in 2012. After undergrad, she was the Sculpture Emerging Artist in Residence at Millersville University in Lancaster, PA and is featured in New Glass Review, 34, 2013. Paige is an adjunct at Salem Community College and Tyler School of Art. She currently resides in Philadelphia where she has a private studio.

A program of Plant Me Here and DVAA:
-Plant Me Here is a Philadelphia artist collective and ongoing experiment in interdisciplinary collaboration. They center women and queer artists of all disciplines in pursuit of discovering new ways to make, promote, and consume art.
-Da Vinci Art Alliance (DVAA) is a supportive community of artists and creatives focused on capturing the spirit of Leonardo da Vinci. A luminary artist, scientist, architect, engineer, musician and humanitarian, Da Vinci’s curiosity inspires creativity, innovation and collaboration among our membership. Like Leonardo, we ask big questions, ponder complex ideas, experiment with form and create new ways of engaging with and sharing our art.
