Matthew Chamber’s uniquely beautiful ceramics are born from a love of geometric and constructivist art, architecture, and design. His work is an abstract exploration of shape that combines traditional processes with contemporary form. Created from stoneware clay that has been coloured with oxides and stains, each piece is individually thrown on the potter’s wheel.
Matthew Chambers graduated with a BA in Ceramics from Bath Spa University College, and later an MA in Ceramics and Glass from the Royal College of Art. He was named the Nelson Woo Foundation Scholar at the Royal College of Art in 2002, won the Ceramic Review Prize at Ceramic Art London in 2006, was awarded a diploma at the World Ceramic Biennale, Korea in 2006, and was shortlisted for the Westerwald Prize, Germany in 2009. Public commissions have included a sculpture for the Rocco Forte Hotel Villa Kennedy in Germany, the cruise ship Spirit of Adventure and the Hyatt Great Eastern Hotel London. Matthew is a Professional Member of Contemporary Applied Arts, London.
