Bill Morgan Freeman (born 1941 in Asheville, North Carolina, died July 17, 2006 in Birmingham) was an artist and craftsman.

Freeman grew up in North Carolina and attended North Carolina State University. He served in the U. S. Navy and was employed as a district sales manager for Bristol Myers before opening his own stained glass company, Freeman Glass.

While on the craft show circuit he met his wife, Susan, and eventually gave up his business to join her pottery work, helping convert the basement of their Southside house into a pottery studio. Not content to stick with one activity, Freeman mastered the arts of brewing beer and raising bonsai. He rebuilt a Triumph Spitfire in his garage and hand-raised two litters of orphaned kittens.

Freeman died unexpectedly in 2006.
