‘The mystery in the construction which often seems to grab people was never fully on my mind, but I always enjoy seeing the wonder in the faces of people as they experience them for the first time.
Along with trying to express beauty, I also consciously focus in on this when making to keep the mystery alive and the experience intact.’
Matthew Chambers is an internationally recognised ceramic artist creating mesmerising sculptures that draw the eye into the deepest depth of each piece.
Matthew specialises in sculptures constructed of multiple sections built on the potter’s wheel. Inspired by visual rhythm and the beautiful repetition he witnesses in his everyday life, from beautiful structures to patterns in nature. His pieces are constructed from the inside-out and focus on bringing a heightened sense of calm and serenity with increased space between layers in subtle shades and light pastel hues.
Beginning his career in 1993, as an assistant potter to Philip Wood in Somerset, UK, Matthew went on to gain a 1st class degree from Bath School of Art, and a Masters from the Royal College of Art in London, graduating in 2004. Now working on the Isle of Wight, his work has been exhibited worldwide including the Victoria and Albert Museum, the World Ceramic Centre, Korea and Homo Faber in Venice. Matthew’s work is also held in many public and private collections worldwide with museums including the National Museums Scotland, the Musee Ariana in Geneva, and the Sévres Museum Paris.
