The intention of Matthew’s ceramics illustrates the awe and wonder of a young boy obsessed with comic books and science fiction. Each piece is given up to the imagination of the viewer and one has to admire Matthew’s work for its certainly playful, imaginative, and mysterious qualities. Even though the ceramics delve outside traditions of these functional shapes, they still contain a sense of durability.

He has had numerous exhibitions throughout his undergraduate career and Matt also had the opportunity to show his work in Montpellier, France in 2009. As an undergraduate he was the president of the MSU Ceramics Guild for two years.
