Matt Davis Ceramics

As the ceramic vessel can be seen as a pivotal marker in the development of civilisation, this work aims to mark society in the Information Age.

Pastiche archetypal forms are created by combining computers with traditional techniques and result in parody by using high technology to make ‘lo-tech’ artefacts.

These objects intend to confront perceptions of digital tooling in relation to craft and further dialogues surrounding the handmade versus machine.

The transmutation of intangible code by immortalising it in once organic matter is central to the work’s theme of dualism and presents virtual forms in physical reality.

Work has been published in such magazines as Wallpaper*, The Financial Times ‘How to spend it’, Architectural Digest (Germany) and Elle Decoration.

Pieces are currently held in private collections and in the permanent collection at the Potteries Museum in Stoke-on-Trent.

Matt Davis studied at Camberwell School of Art and Brighton Univerity. He holds a 1st class MDes in 3D Design and a BA (Hons) in Graphic Design
