I have been following the ceramics of Matthew D. Ward on Instagram for some time now. If you take a look at some of these pieces, you know why I follow him. A long time creative, Matthew is a self taught potter with a keen eye for pattern and shape. I don’t know if the “totem” and eye shaped patter (seen in the first pic) is hi “signature” patter but that is one that first caught my attention. If you are into pottery and ceramics make sure to check out the rest of his work and follow him on instagram.
“The visual vocabulary of my work stems from an uninhibited creativity that was cultivated during early childhood and has extended into my present labors. I have been blessed with creative intuition, and through a lifetime of creative experience I have found that the most reward from artistic endeavors comes from the act of doing. I find great emotional release and serenity through creation.”
