Matthew Foster

Ceramic Patterned Lidded Jar


This ceramic lidded jar spotlights Matthew Foster’s love for form and surface. Note how the handcrafted piece is detailed with an intricate geometric pattern, where each shape nestles into the next as if it’s a perfectly formed puzzle piece. It satisfies Foster’s brief for his creations – that they should all have a personality of their own – while the sculptural handle on the lid ensures that it’s a functional delight, as well as an aesthetic one.
