About the Maker
Matt Foster studied fine art at Kent University 2004-2006. He went on to work for the Millennium Gallery in St Ives where he worked alongside a collection of exciting contemporary artists.
In October 2015, Matt joined the Leach Pottery as the second Seasalt Bursary Apprentice, giving him the opportunity to learn and work alongside a talented and diverse production team. ‘This environment and opportunity allows me to develop my personal work. At the moment I'm focusing on organic, semi abstract brushwork influenced by eastern traditions and the Leach legacy. I want to create forms that feel comfortable and are enjoyable to use.’
Matt’s approach to his work as an artist and tradesman places more importance on function than the appearance of beauty. He aims to achieve a transition from the traditions that influence him to a contemporary practice that speaks of his personality.
