Matt Wedel, creator of massive ceramic sculptures, currently has an exhibition at Venice, California’s L.A. Louver Gallery, Matt Wedel: Peaceable Fruit (November 18 – December 30). Wedel showed there two years ago with Sheep’s Head, which we covered in one of CFile’s very first posts.
We found a video recently that captures Wedel in his studio in Athens, Ohio. In a short interview, Wedel scales an enormous head from the Sheep’s Head show and talks about the scale of his “5,000-pound eggshells.”
“I just like walking through my works and walking around them and building inside of my works. That’s just so exciting to me.”
