Slideshow and Lecture by Matthew A. Yanchuk
Have you been thinking about selling your work? Artists who choose to sell as their main source of income face unique challenges. They are called on to play many different roles at once, such as business owner, artist, self-advocate, sales person, web master, etc. It can be confusing and overwhelming to say the least.
Matthew A. Yanchuk Ceramics
"Challenging myself to create is part of the process. Learning new ways to translate and interpret the medium and ideas is an exciting adventure."
Over the years, Matthew A. Yanchuk has explored all kinds of ceramic processes and materials, from earthenware to porcelain, functional to decorative—and learned much along the way. Whether creating work through wheel throwing, hand building, or slip casting, Yanchuk is inspired by his surroundings, memories, and interests.
Yanchuk's pieces take on aspects of architecture and fabric construction, using texture as a decorative touch. The forms that he produces come from a very organic point of view, utilizing the structure to capture the light going through the work. There is an illusion that the piece may or may not be functional—it is both at the same time.
