Matthew Tyas - ceramicist and potter

Matthew is a Master’s qualified ceramic designer-maker (and potter!) whose primary medium is clay. He has a wide range of interests in making and materials and recent practice has been focused on developing work about seasons and landscapes, as evidenced in his Sea and Sky collection currently available at Heart Gallery.

Sea and Sky is an eclectic and engaging collection of contemporary Blue and White ceramics that speaks in a fresh way, taking its inspiration from the natural world.

Previewed at BCTF, in April 2010, Matthew designed the range to explore the realms of Sea and Sky, where calm contemplation and subtle activity are in abundance. Sea and Sky looks great individually, or it can be collected to form effective, expressive and highly personalised multiples and groupings.

The theme is explored through the sea which is grounded and earthly; sometimes calm, sometimes active but always expressed through unique vessel forms, while the sky is boundless and floating, interpreted through decorative, contemplative and wall-mountable open forms.

Matthew previously had studio space in Penistone and on the periphery of the Yorkshire Sculpture Park – both in South Yorkshire, where he developed, made and taught ceramics. He’s currently based in Cornwall and undertaking PhD research in collaboration with University College Falmouth and the Leach Pottery, specifically looking at: “Designing 21st Century Standard Ware: The Cultural Heritage of Bernard Leach and the Creative and Economic Benefits of Digital Technologies”.
