I love a bust on a desk or perhaps a mantelpiece. This is one of my versions. I fancy it's a hero from Homer's Iliad. With a crest of tulips and a face of bees. Hand built one-of-a-kind in stoneware clay and my own glazes.

Using a variety of clay bodies and glazes which he crafts himself, Matthew Solomon creates sculptures of beauty with an element of the unexpected. Delphiniums swirl over the surface of a tower, obscuring the form beneath. Decaying leaves, sparkling with an iridescent glaze, encrust a pair of lidded vases. Repetition of form and color creates order within the chaotic floral camouflage.
Born in Brooklyn, Matthew studied at the School of Visual Arts and the Appalachian Center for Crafts before graduating from the New York State School of Ceramics at Alfred University. In 2017 he was awarded an unconditional grant from the Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation. His work has been exhibited at the New York Design Fair, the New York Ceramics Fair, the International Fine Art & Antique Dealers Show at the Park Avenue Armory, TEFAF New York Spring, The International Exposition of Contemporary & Modern Art in Chicago. and the Neuberger Museum of Art. Additionally, his work has been in Architectural Digest, the New York Times Magazine and numerous other publications.
His collectors include icons of art and design such as Agnes Gund, Cindy Sherman and Kitty Hawks. Solomon’s sculptures have also been featured in the interiors of exceptional designers and architects such as Victoria Hagan, Ike Kligerman Barkley, Debora Staley, Douglas Durkin and Dennis McGlade.
Solomon's repertoire ranges from delicate tabletop tulips to installations covering entire walls and/or ceilings. The artist's vases and centerpieces marry function with aesthetic elegance. Basing his designs off of the actual botanic qualities of flowers, Solomon is able to translate the chaos and order of nature into works large and small.
