Sculpting personalized interior spaces from full service design to a single, custom artwork for residential and commercial environments.

 

Ashley Morgan created a studio practice to explore the curiosities that objects and spaces contain.  Nostalgic, salvaged, and quality materials and craftsmanship play a starring role in the poetic objects and spaces created by this firm.  A deliberate attempt is made to draw the viewer into an enchanted world in which objects have the ability to quietly transform space into a surreal playing field for the imagination.  Positioned between fine art and design, she creates objects and spaces that are minimal, thoughtful and full of meaning one might not expect.  

...if I were asked to name the chief benefit of the house, I should say: the house shelters day-dreaming, the house protects the dreamer, the house allows one to dream in peace.

-Gaston Bachelard (The Poetics of Space), 1958
 

Ashley Morgan studied sculpture and spatial design at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (MFA 2010) and sculpture, painting/drawing at Arkansas State University (BFA 2006).  Her work has been exhibited both nationally and internationally including public art projects in Florence, Italy and Seoul, Korea.  Through her research, Morgan has also been selected as a fellow for the Greater Milwaukee Foundation Mary Nohl Fellowship and awarded a Sonnabend Fellowship for the Museum of Jurassic Technology in Los Angeles.
