December 5, 2023

Morgan Robinson, an Oklahoma native, is a talented artist who specializes in wood and metalwork. Robinson earned his BFA in sculpture from the University of Central Oklahoma, where he dedicated his time to learning the art of furniture-making.

Robinson's passion for woodworking took him on a journey to Japan, where he was able to learn traditional woodworking methods that have been used for centuries. Robinson's experience in Japan further expanded his knowledge and skills in the craft of woodworking.

After returning to Stillwater, Oklahoma, Robinson established his woodworking studio. Robinson's studio is focused on merging eastern minimalistic philosophies with sculptural forms to create functional and aesthetically pleasing pieces that enhance our daily lives.

"My works take inspiration from the potential of organic shapes, forms, and entities to invite inquiry and fascination. Once an intriguing shape captures my attention I record it in a sketch and explore its potential to be developed into a sculpture or piece of design. Eventually, I express the shape to be realized with wood and metal in such a way that chords a feeling in which words cannot convey."

"I attempt to stay clear of the mundane by taking a closer look at the things that can do nothing else but encompass my sight. Unable to ignore organic language, I follow the indigenous bends in pieces of nature. There is no part of my environment too obscure to inspire. Refracted light and shadows overlapping as well as elements that can be held in your hand or seen with a magnifying glass – they all hold purpose and contain beauty. The beauty perceived is what suggests a more insightful, more meaningful spirituality. The meaning projects out of imagination and undeniable existence, and attraction is seen from a vast array of perspectives.”
