Warmus, William "William Morris Native Species"
William Morris Native Species by William Warmus
Hardcover book, standard edition
William Morris: Native Species grew out of a collaboration between glass artist William Morris and collector George Stroemple. The men had been friends for many years, sharing a respect for the profound beauty of the natural world. Stroemple had already amassed a significant collection of Morris' work when, in 2004, he proposed a commission of objects inspired by the indigenous flora and fauna of the Pacific Northwest. The 38 vessels in Native Species are Morris' response.
The vessels in the collection are intricately wrought with pine needles and cones, aspen trees, dragonflies, pheasants, ground squirrels, acorns, wild grasses, lizards, and cedar boughs—elements evocative of the Oregon and Washington landscape. As Stroemple has said, "These are souvenirs of a walk Bill and I might take in the wilderness."
