An idea born from the 1st Lockdown. Matthew put his time to good use, working in his converted home garage rather than his studio, resulting in his very first bronze sculpture .
Still recognisable with the layered elements from his ceramic style, this bronze takes his talent to a new level allowing him to demonstrate his ability to make a piece that can be viewed from any angle, showing his total understanding of a curve and his dedication to a perfect edge. Mr Chambers is known as a perfectionist, making ceramic sculptures that no one can replicate. This is an exciting new chapter. Influenced by some of The British greats including Barbara Hepworth
Measures 38 cms high x 40 wide . Grey stone Patina bronze
"I make sculpture that is born from the potters wheel. Many sections are thrown and built to create a constructed beauty,rhythm, and symmetry in abstract form."
Matthew is interested in the travel and progression of layered three dimensional pattern, and how this can create different qualities depending on the workings of three essential factors.Construction,Rhythm pattern and The Viewing Position and depth in form.
"It is a true love of the making process that drives the creation of my sculpture. Through practice and persistence I have developed a unique way of making, and it is this alongside the versatility of clay that is essential in creating the individual character of the work".
Matthew Chambers is regarded as a leading British Potter and is represented in many major collections and Museums around the globe including the Victoria and Albert Museum, London.
