Morgan Boszilkov is a self-taught artist using clay, fabric, and paint to create two-dimensional and sculptural vibrant works of art. She has created an innovative form of fine art: ceramics sewn onto canvas. Her work captures the beauty and richness of the natural world amidst our changing climate, reflecting her core values of conservation and sustainability. Her newest work of ceramics on canvas debuted in a nearly sold-out solo show at Gainey Hall in Serenbe.
Morgan sculpts clay into natural forms like flowers and leaves. She also makes ceramic “quilt” triangles, glazing each as if it were a miniature painting and integrates them into the sculptures. These triangles frame, flow through, emphasize, anchor and transition into the organic shapes. She then works intuitively to arrange, connect and harmonize the sculptural elements and textures with beading and embroidery on sustainable fabrics. She experiments with the concept of wabi-sabi and beauty in imperfection, exploring various materials and always experimenting with new techniques. The process of art is an impatient meditation that brings her joy and fulfillment.
Morgan comes from a family of professional artists and is inspired by nature, her travels to Asia and Europe, and the various materials with which she works. Her eclectic travels and self-taught craftsmanship culminated into a successful line of eco-friendly wedding gowns, Natural Bridal Collection by Morgan Boszilkov. Her sustainable gown designs were featured in Brides Magazine, Skirt!, CNN, OneWed, and Style Me Pretty, and she even designed a dress for Melissa Rivers, during TLC’s “Who are you wearing?” design challenge, and won the competition. Her current ceramic work featuring handmade tiles has been highlighted in the Atlanta Journal Constitution and HGTV.
