Matt worked in potteries in Bath and in the Hebrides throughout the 1990's until 2001, when he
set up his present workshop at Stowford Farm in Wiltshire.
He makes a range of tableware alongside individual and larger pieces using a Cornish stoneware
clay. The pots are fired in an 18 cuft gas kiln, built in 2004, which takes up to 14 hours to reach
the top temperature of 1300c.
The glazes, which are mostly oriental in origin, include copper reds, iron rich tenmoku, shino, kaki,
blue jun and a cream coloured chun. Other glazes make use of estuary mud and wood ash, creating
the character and colour of the glaze.
