Ceramic art has the ability to satisfy Matt's dual nature as an artist. Matt loves to make "things" that function and live with people in their homes by delivering coffee into their bellies every morning, or prominently displaying fresh-cut flowers straight from the garden. He finds great value in any piece of handmade workmanship, and feels incredibly proud yet humbled by the ability to create his own pottery. Clay also appeals to the more creative and darkly humorous part of Matt's nature. Science fiction and comic book art are huge influences on Matt's aesthetic. His work reflects a love of nature and the ancient art form of pottery, and the even greater love of twisting it all into something unexpected.
