Beautiful large-scale sculptures from Matt Wedel’s otherworldy imagination

Sculptor Matt Wedel received his MFA from California State University and began teaching there in 2007. Since then he has extended his teaching career to multiple art institutes across the nation while he has kept up his personal practice in Athens, Ohio. In his studio Wedel builds, glazes, and fires each piece of each larger-than-life ceramic sculpture on his own without the help of assistants. His shows blend a range of pieces some of which appear like statues made to honor cartoon-character-like figures while others convey the intricate and fiery beauty of wild flowers. Dive into Wedel’s world below!
