Amber Matthews

Artist statement:  My work explores transition, adaptation, and interactions between animals and humans. My animal-human hybrids are caught in a state of transition. They are stuck in-between, awkward and uncomfortable, but also beautiful in their own way. I hope you will wonder which way these creatures are transforming - animal to human or human to animal. I work mostly with low-fire clay and underglazes. Underglaze allows me more control over color and surface texture than traditional glazes, and I enjoy the process of painting. Each piece has many layers of underglaze built up to add depth and detail.
