Pierced and Etched Ceramics
by Matt Repsher, USA


Precisely etching fine lines into leather-hard clay, Matt transforms simple surfaces into elaborate and dynamic mandala-like patterns that are dusted with pale matte glazes.

The 'Fish Plate" mirror series were inspired by the Hellenistic Greek form of the same name, only substituting the small central sauce well for a mirror. The deep form projects out from the wall by several inches, enhancing the dimensional, sculptural qualities of the shape and allowing for additional patterning visible when seen from the side. Matt's Fish Plates are exclusive to Culture Object.
