Painting by Geoff Morten

 

Geoff trained at the Royal College of Art in London where he received a Master's Degree in Fine Art.

He is a Reader in Fine Art and was a Professor of painting in two UK Universities (Sunderland and Durham) and visiting Professor at Timisoara University in Romania.

His work is held in many public and private collections, including the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, the Yugoslavian National gallery and the Museum of Fine Arts in Timisoara, Romania.

  

Jenny trained at the Central School in London (now part of the London Institute).

Her work has covered the spectrum of clay. She made functional stoneware and designed for industry early in her career (J&G Morten Ceramic Designs).

Later came individual small vessels, thrown and pinched in porcelain which formed the basis for her larger hand built pieces, one of which was selected for the 'Fletcher Challenge' competition, Auckland, new Zealand in 1994 and another selected for the 'Millenium Platter' exhibition at the Powerhouse Museum, Sydney, Australia in 2000.

These larger vessels explore the theme of organic abstraction, combining three dimensional sculptural elements with surface texture and drawing.
