Hand built vessel oriented stoneware and paperclay pieces, reduction fired.
Being a musician as well as a potter, I bring into my ceramic work the same creative process which lies behind improvisation in music: the spontaneity and intuitive "free-ness" of the moment of creation.
I like to leave impressed in clay the immediacy of this process, both in texture and in form. The Vessel, as an object which gives form to an empty space, serves as the starting point for ideas. Nature, especially geological marks, and ancient man-made artefacts transformed by time are a source of inspiration.
Macio works in red and white stoneware and paperclay, which is reduction fired in a gas kiln.
Vessel-oriented individual pieces are entirely hand-built with sprayed glazes and brushed decoration emphasizing surface texture.
New work by Marcio Mattos will be in the gallery and on the website shortly.
