Matthew Chambers creates concentrically layered ceramic pieces that he sculpts in clay, preferring to work without the constraints of a sketch. Each layer is an individual section thrown on a potter’s wheel, sanded and polished at different stages to maintain their smooth surfaces. The artist then stratifies selected layers to create a solid form that evokes the movement of its formation as it reveals its strata. Chambers achieves unique colors by adding oxides and stains directly to the clay before each layer is thrown. Both minimalist and complex, the resulting pieces are reminiscent of natural forms seen through the lens of a microscope. Spiral Sculpture is a unique work, signed by the artist.
