Despite being a writer, I'd never actually dated anyone who was also into any kind of creative outlet, and I was immediately drawn to the fact that Matt was. I loved that we could connect on that artistic level, and I was in awe of the fact that he could envision a piece, draw it, and then execute it.

|In 2011, one of Matt's pieces, "Smoldering", was accepted into a local art exhibit.|
|This is one of my favorites. It's called "Self Portrait."|
|Matt hand carves every cutout and groove in his pieces. Here's a great picture of the detail-work on "Realizing Dreams".|
Matt has started a Kickstarter to help him get his gallery set up and running. Those who donate will receive a custom-made ceramic piece. If you're feeling philanthropic (or just love ceramics), please consider donating to his studio!

Matt's extremely talented and this is his passion; I'm so proud of him for taking the risk and going for it. It's not an easy thing to do, but I have a good feeling that this is really meant to happen for him!
