Now, after almost three decades of exploring themes around animals and plants, Morgan has started a line of “women’s platters,” such as one with two women, each holding a glass of wine and deeply attuned to each other. “I was inspired by female friendships and how important they are,” Morgan says, “talking out concerns, laughing, being creative.”
Now that her children are older, Morgan treasures spending more time with her women friends and sees more women’s platters in her future. She also sees more large installations, such as her kitchen tile designs, projects that offer her the coveted “clay canvas” for deeper creative expression. As she says, “I enjoy creating little stories on my mugs and other pottery, and working on the wall art as a clay canvas really allows me to spread those stories out.”Flying Pig Pottery, 410 Woods Hole Road, Woods Hole, is open seven days a week. Morgan’s work is also available at Coffee Obsession in Falmouth and Woods Hole and at shows around Cape Cod and eastern Massachusetts, including the upcoming Wellfleet OysterFest, Oct. 15-16.
