Meet The Maker
Meet The Maker:
Fine art graduate and QEST scholar Matthew Foster is based in St Ives, Cornwall, where he works alongside a talented production team at the Leach Pottery. He champions rustic simplicity with a philosophy that closely aligns with that of mingei – a mode of thinking that advocates for the work of ‘ordinary people’s crafts’. His creations explore personal expression through form, surface and the gesture of making, all while ensuring the bottom line of functionality is fulfilled.
