Matthew Katz

I am a ceramics materials nerd and I hope to share my knowledge and experience with you. I have a BFA and MFA in ceramic art, I also have spent 20 years working in ceramic science. I have taught ceramic science for artists at the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University for 15 years. My understanding of how artists work and think and the knowledge of ceramic scientists enables me to teach artists to make the most of their materials.
