About the Artist

Photo of the artist

Sara E. Morales-Morgan is an artist from San Jose, California, and Hartselle, Alabama. She creates illustrative ceramic objects that explore how memory shapes her notions of home and identity. She received her Master’s degree in Ceramics from Edinboro University of Pennsylvania and her Bachelor’s degree in Studio Art from the University of South Alabama. She has exhibited her work nationally, most notably in juried shows at the Archie Bray Foundation, Red Lodge Clay Center, The Clay Studio, and Baltimore Clayworks; at the annual National Conference for the Education of Ceramic Arts; and at the Dairy Barn Arts Center’s “OH+5: Ohio Border Biennial,” where she won “Best in Show.” Her work has been published in Ceramics Monthly and in “500 Figures in Clay, Volume 2” by LARK Books. She has been a resident artist at the Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts’ “Pentaculum,” at the Watershed Center for Ceramic Arts as a Kiln God Award recipient, and at Baltimore Clayworks as the 2016 – 2017 Lormina Salter Fellow.

Sara is happily married to her best friend and is a proud parent of two cats.
