Sculptor * Designer
Morgan Robinson is an artist from Stillwater, Oklahoma working primarily with wood and metal. He received his BFA in sculpture from the University of Central Oklahoma where he had the freedom to experiment with furniture as art. After graduating, Robinson worked as a custom cabinet maker for five years, refining his wood working skills and techniques. After traveling to Japan and learning traditional methods of wood working used for centuries, he returned home to set up a wood/metal working studio in Stillwater, OK, where he currently teaches 3D Foundations at Oklahoma State University. Robinson’s work focuses on merging eastern philosophies of minimalism and sculptural form into beautiful artistic statements to add to the quality in our daily lives.

"It's the clouds, it's the grass, it's the scars on someone's face... My inspiration comes from various places.."
In Imagining the Unthinkable, Creating the Unimaginable at PechaKucha Night Tokyo Vol. 142, Sculptor Morgan Robinson goes into depth about his source of inspiration, studio practice, and the outlet for his work. He finds the process/challenge of making his art more important than the actual pieces he realizes through the contemporary, non-figurative expressions that he creates using wood and metal.
