The Early Years  -- 1966-1974

Tracing the historical path of our designs from the early simple, rectilinear work to the more complex and sculptural.

Morris began making furniture in his last year at Pratt, and took it up full time two years later.  His first workshop was a spare bedroom and his tools were minimal and mostly secondhand.  His first shop was set up in 1968 in San Francisco.  As his clientele and skills grew, so did the sophistication of his work. Note the variety of  influences including Japanese joinery,  The Bauhaus,  George Nakashima, and Arthur Espinet Carpenter .
