Display artist/maker:

John Meirion Morris

Born: 1936, UK, Wales, Bala, Llanuwchlyn

Studied at Liverpool College of Art, with a strong emphasis on modelling and life drawing. He taught both in Llanidloes and at Leamington Spa Art School, but travelled to Africa in 1966 where he lectured at Kamasi University, Ghana. The highly spiritual culture of the country has heavily influenced his work, and reminded him of the same qualities in Welsh culture and tradition. Only two years later, he returned to Wales to become a lecturer in Sculpture and Education at Aberystwyth University. After 11 years in this post he left to focus on his artistic work, but returned to education to lead the art department of 'Coleg Normal' in Bangor. He finally retired permanently from education in 1990.
