COLLECTORS LIBRARY ROOM

AS THIS WEBSITE IS BOTH A GALLERY AND A SHOP, IT IS ALSO A MUSEUM OF MEMORIES, EVENTS, TIMES AND PLACES WHERE ALL THE ROBERT LEE MORRIS JEWELRY HAS TOUCHED.

HERE IS (THE WORK), MY FAVORITE CHILDREN, THAT I HAVE LET FLY THE NEST. I FEEL ANY STUDENT OR PEER OR COLLECTOR, OR JUST ANYONE INTERESTED IN MY ARCHIVES SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO VIEW THE “ONES THAT GOT AWAY”.

BRAVO TO ALL COLLECTORS, BRAVE, PASSIONATE AND HEROIC FOR THEY ARE A VERY VALUABLE FORCE IN SOCIETY. I SEE THESE SPECIAL PEOPLE AS GARDENERS OF OUR ART WORLD, PROVIDING CARE, SECURITY, AND LOVE, NURTURING WE MAKERS TO BLOOM. COLLECTORS SUPPORT ARTISTS WHOSE LIVES THEN CHANGE FOR THE BETTER.
