Matthew Chambers makes sculpture that is born from the potter’s wheel. Each piece is constructed of many sections that are thrown and built to create a sculpture of complex, individual beauty with rhythm and symmetry in each form.
An early training in production ceramics gave Chambers the passion for the making process and it is still the driving force behind the creation of his sculpture today. Through education, practice and persistence he has developed a unique method that utilises the versatility of clay to its potential, which is essential for creating the individual character of the work.
Chambers' focus is on the repetition of pattern: he creates sculptural forms that hold repeating shapes and patterns within a single form. The repetition in each piece holds a true and honest rhythm and beauty. His sculptural pieces have a visual rhythm which is wholly conscious and purposefully created, achieved by using the placement of each repeat form layered inside another.
