Phil Morgan

Phil’s shapes and forms bring forward a most ancient and rare porcelain glazing technique from the Chung Dynasty. Only a few pieces survived the last 1500 years. However, reflecting those artisans, Phil Morgan of Seagrove, North Carolina, is currently hand-throwing a modern interpretation of Crystalline glazed porcelain in which each piece is a unique, and individual work of art.

Each piece is hand crafted of fine porcelain, completely by the artist, from the hand mixing of the clay and glazes, to the firing and finishing of the piece. Crystalline glazes are produced through specific glaze formulation, and carefully controlled firing procedures. During the firing procedure, the cooling cycle is slowed to allow portions of the glaze to separate from the batch in an orderly fashion to form crystals.
