theStudio Artist of the Week…

Matt Wedel, Ceramic Artist, Long Beach, CA

This week ceramic artist Matt Wedel’s botanical, human and animal forms caught our eye. His pieces are large and fluid with simple but powerfully saturated color. What we found most unique about Wedel’s works are the dynamic crystalline structure that his floral and fauna, humans and animals are built atop of. These structures create a very dramatic and bold statement for his pieces.

We also loved the resemblance of the California (or Arizona and Texas) Desert his blooming cactus-like organic structures and crystalline rock bases create.
