Ray Morales received his BFA from the University of Central Florida, and his MFA from the University of Mimi. He currently exhibits at the Florida CraftArt Gallery in St. Petersburg, and teaches Ceramics at Miami-Dade College. In addition, he has worked with companies and designers to produce unique works.
“My intention is to create pottery that’s unique, inviting and elegant. I am interested in familiar forms and the challenge of transforming them into art. Making handmade pottery creates a dialog about my life as an artist, the pots I make and the people who use them. I hope that this dialog promotes a greater appreciation and understanding of handmade objects and how they help us celebrate our daily lives.”
