Artist Profile

Matthew Ginsberg

Medium: Ceramics

Description:  Home ceramics for the table as well as designs for living spaces

I see myself as a sculptor of abstract form and design, as much as a potter of wheel thrown pieces for table and home. I am a creator and conceiver ~of thoughts, and emotions. I equally enjoy the elements of the unknown, pushing the limits of the clay in sculpture, …as well as wheel thrown forms, which create and define our everyday life. I have worked for 9 years as a ceramic artist. When I’m throwing, I’m always thinking in my minds eye about the next sculpture I’ll be working on. And the opposite holds true as well. When I’m sculpting a form, my thoughts go to ideas for sets of dinner plates, or sets of bowls. The interplay of this regulation of thought, and sight, is what truly captivates me these days. There is a type of “creative composition,” running, beyond the back and forth. Through this I’m finding, new insights, variations on themes, and even resemblance's, in the work. The end result is that my spirit finds a type of it’s own origination in a creative and aesthetic energy stream. The unraveling flow is a lively, busy excitement constantly running through my studio space. In all the projects I do I try and hold onto the greatness of the material. The clay itself, its texture and weight, are always central, and at the heart of my work.
