Morgen Hall

Born: 1960, USA, California, Roseville   Died: 2016, UK, Wales, Cardiff

Ceramicist. Hall spent her early years in Scotland. She trained in ceramics in the 1980s at Grays School of Art, Aberdeen, followed by an MA at the University of Wales Art School in Cardiff, where she settled and took up employment.

Hall was committed to the production of tableware intended for everyday use. The playful forms and lively decorated surfaces emphasise the celebratory aspects of mealtimes, offering an irresistible invitation to take tea. The wares are wheel-thrown in a fine red earthenware, impressed patterned with a roulette, and turned to give a very precise finish. The decoration uses coloured slips and paper stencils.

Between 1998 and 2001, Hall worked as a research fellow at Cardiff, investigating ways of combining more industrial methods with hand production and introduced aspects of computer technology to create the designs.
