Matthew Chambers

Matthew began his journey in 1993 - 1996 with a training in handmade tableware with Philip Wood in Nunney, the Somerset villiage where he grew up. In 1999 he attended Bath School of Art, followed with an MA at the Royal College of Art in London from 2002. This included a scolarship with the Nelson Woo foundation.

He has won numerous Awards and Prizes including - The Ceramic Review Prize which was awarded ('06) at Ceramic Art London and The Poole Pottery Prize for Ceramic Shape ('02). He currently lives and makes on the Isle of Wight after moving there on a residency at Quay Arts in 2004. Matt is a member of Contemporary Applied Arts London ('07)

He has exhibited internationally and his work is in great demand. Commissions for private clients, designers, interior designers, office spaces etc are what takes up a lot of his time. He likes to experiment with new materials and shapes and is always working on a new challenge. 

Geometry and 'Art-itecture' underpin Matt's design process. He uses a mix of traditional processes and techniques to create a contemporary mesmerising design. Somehow light and shadow become living things as they move over the surfaces. Circles within circles feature. Each piece has a character and feel.

Beautiful from every angle and minimal, with a Zen like feel, there is also a hidden complexity and playfulness to each piece which intrigues the onlooker and in turn blows the mind.

To aquire a piece of Matt's work is to own a part of his masterful ceramic journey. A precious thing indeed.

We specialise in organising commissions and would love to hear from you and help you plan your perfect piece.
