Matthew Raw

Matthew Raw is a ceramic artist who explores the physical and communicative properties of the tile, using textures, colour and language to tell stories of people and place.

His projects span galleries, residency formats and education establishments, and he has shown work across the UK and internationally in the USA, Italy, France, Germany and Denmark.

THE PROCESS

For the Rustication Collection, each tile is hand pressed and finished by Matthew at Froyle Tiles in Surrey to ensure the integrity and mark of the hand, whilst also being able to produce a range of quantities. Matthew has worked with three different colours of glaze to pool in the textures and give a wide range of tonal effects. The glaze also means that on any surface, a wide range of colours can be achieved - a nod back to the Victorian facades that originally inspired this work.

Maker's Quote

Clay instinctively attracted me due to the feeling and speed with which I could form something, and shaping a humble lump of clay still inspires me 15 years on. I love rolling clay into ‘slabs’, and cutting them up to create tiles and sculptural forms. Since finishing my studies at the Royal College of Art in 2010 I have incorporated working abroad into my practice, and consequently I am fed from a global perspective. Inspiration comes from urban surroundings and I am particularly attracted to post-industrial cities.
