Open Water Series

 

Matt' "Open Water" series celebrates life on the Jersey Shore. His landscape narrative series captures different view points of coastal living in the Long Beach Island region. His many different pottery forms depict scenes from a day at the beach, a view of the Barnegat Light Inlet, sunsets over Manahawkin Bay, a glimpse of the wetlands flora and fauna, breaching whales or a glimpse of sea life under the Atlantic ocean.

Matt throws and hand-builds his forms using a white stoneware clay body. When the clay is wet the surfaces are manipulated to create waves, ripples or flowing sand dunes. After bisque fire, skies, clouds and sunsets are brushed on using under glazes. Glazes are brushed, poured, dipped or sprayed then fired to cone 10 (2300º) a reduction atmosphere. Once the pieces are unloaded from the kiln, image transfers are applied to the piece and then fired for a third time in an electric kiln. Many of the images used for the transfers are from pictures that Matt took.
