My passion for clay lies within functional pottery. I believe that pots have a nature of their own-a soul, a breath of reality, that is inherently guided by their maker. In a world that is fast paced and oriented around convenience in life rather than quality of life, hand made functional pots can slow things down, allowing the user to enjoy the important aspects of human interaction and self-introspection. Hand made pottery is a complete human expression, not an interpretation of usable objects that only address a standard.

Matt Long Biography

I received my MFA at Ohio University in 1997, my BFA from The Kansas City Art Institute in 1995. I am currently an Assistant Professor at The University of Mississippi, running the ceramics area.

I have been a potter for 22 years, and currently reside in Oxford Mississippi where I teach, and have a studio at home.

My work can been seen in many national juried and invitational shows throughout the country.  I teach between 6-8 workshops a year, and am involved in 8-10 national shows a year.
