Carolyn Morris Bach
Southern Rhode Island
A graduate of the prestigious Rhode Island School of Design, Carolyn Morris Bach lives in southern Rhode Island. Her studio is surrounded by pastures and forests and impacted directly by the cycles of seasons which connect her to the natural environment and its visual expression in figurative imagery.
For 30 years, her work has developed along themes which are keyed to visual metaphors – often found in old iconographies= representing the powers of sun, moon wind, rain, stones, plants and a selection of animal residents that determine the rural, non-industrial landscape.
Her work is widely collected both in America and abroad and recognized by several organizations with awards of merit from: Smithsonian Institute, American Craft Museum, Philadelphia Museum of Art (Women’s Committee) and a National Endowment for the Arts grant. Most recently, a Carolyn Morris Bach brooch was included in the book by Madeline Albright, Read My Pins. Brooches from her personal collection.
