  • Matthias Kaiser is a ceramic artist based in Austria. He studied at Parsons school of design in NY and the university of applied arts in Vienna and apprenticed with potters in Seto and Karatsu in Japan. He seeks out, processes and blends all raw materials directly from their source. This in-depth involvement gives him a naturally occurring rich, unpredictable palette of tones to work with. The result is both minimalist and manifold, slowly revealing itself to the observer with each glance. Even though most of his objects are functional vessels, his fascination lies in aspects that go beyond their traditional function without diminishing their purpose.
