The accompanying catalogue for Ohio-based artist Matt Wedel’s first major museum exhibition at the Toledo Museum of Art, this generously illustrated book explores the astonishing energy that Wedel has brought to the field of contemporary ceramic sculpture. A prolific maker, he regularly pivots between stoneware, earthenware, and porcelain, exploring the expressiveness of material and color. Matt Wedel: Phenomenal Debris investigates the development and cross-pollination of figuration and landscape in Wedel’s ceramic sculptures, as well as his own psychology and how it transforms both his work and the way he perceives his role as artist, father, and global citizen.
Diane C. Wright with contributions by Halona Norton-Westbrook, Tony Marsh, and Matt Wedel.
