TIM MORGAN MRSS
British born sculptor Tim Morgan studied at Edinburgh College of Art and at the Royal College of Art in London. He was awarded the Andrew Grant Postgraduate Scholarship at Edinburgh College of Art and the Borders Group Prize at the Royal Collage of Art.
Tim is known for his innovative glass sculpture, in particular for his entirely original sculptures of stacked glass rods and cylinders held within a frame; a series of work he began with his ‘Cypher’ sculptures in the 1990's and has continued to develop since.
Tim is experienced in designing and building domestic and large-scale sculptures, architecture design and in teaching. He has been commissioned by, among others, the Contemporary Art Society and Cass Sculpture Foundation.
While at the Royal College of Art he was offered an internship with James Carpenter Design Associates, a downtown Manhattan architectural practice, widely respected for their creative use of glass. During his time with JCDA, Tim had the opportunity to work on a number of exciting projects in the USA and London.
In 2001 Tim was nominated by renowned designer Tom Dixon OBE to take part in the inaugural Bombay Sapphire Glass Prize touring exhibition.
In 2003, Tim started work on the Boat Villa project, a beautiful stone-built cottage in the scenic Wye Valley in Wales, in need of significant renovation. This project gave Tim the opportunity to translate his knowledge of glass, architecture and design, as well as his skills as a maker and designer into building a contemporary living space within a traditional frame.
The project was completed, and the property sold in August 2006. At the end of 2006, Tim took a break from work to fulfil a dream; riding his motorbike solo from Montreal, Canada to Buenos Aires, Argentina. Tim arrived in Buenos Aires in June 2007 having ridden 23,000 miles across twelve countries.
In 2008 Tim took part in London’s Chelsea Flower Show, collaborating with gold medal award winning garden designer Phil Nash to design and build sculpture for his show garden ‘Elevations’.
In 2009 Tim was the invited artist at Visual Arts Scotland, held in the Royal Scottish Academy and in 2011 Tim opened his studio and exhibition space in London SE1. He was elected a member of the Royal Society of Sculptors in 2014.
In 2015 Tim was invited by the respected architects Ian Ritchie CBE RA and Karl Singporewala ARB to collaborate personally on the competition to design the Souse and Bardo Memorial. Their proposal was recommended by the judging panel but chosen by the UK Government to be the runner-up.
Since 2019 Tim has exhibited in France where he has moved his studio and now lives with his wife Nushka and their daughter Allegra.
