About Matthew Solomon

Matthew Solomon’s ceramics mimic the complex botanical structures that inspire his process. After working as a lawyer, Solomon took up gardening, which inspired him to create ceramics based on flowers. Using white porcelain and his own glazes, Solomon recreates the delicacy of the natural world in intricately designed ceramics. His pieces often take weeks to complete given their complexity. The elaborate surfaces and range of hues recall luxurious European design objects and rococo decor—a quality that underlines how Solomon is influenced not only by the flowers in his garden but also those seen in historical paintings.
