Matt and his wife, potter Shoko Teruyama, spent the month of June working and teaching at the Archie Bray. I loved the vase drawings Matt tacked up to his studio wall. He uses brown butcher paper to design and make cut outs for potential forms. The curilinear lines of the drawings gave the studio a beautiful energy.
Matt and Shoko are past resident artists at the Penland School of Craft. Check out this 2007 video from the PBS Craft in America Series were they talk about their residency experience.
