Naomi Morgan

   Naomi was born in New York on September 21, 1929. She moved to California around 1959 and worked as a nuclear physicist. She was a sculptor for over 10 years and also began to sculpt gemstones. She joined the Mineral & Gem Society of Castro Valley and in 1995 began to make beautiful commessi (intarsias). Due to her outstanding work ethic, she is currently the most prolific commesso artist in this country, producing picture after picture with seeming disregard for the hardness of the stones and the extreme difficulty in their assembly.
