WONDERFUL ORGANIC PATTERNS AND TEXTURES INTO COURTNEY MATTISON'S SCULPTURES

Courtney Mattison is an artist and "ocean advocate" working to inspire policy makers and the public to conserve our changing seas. She hand-sculpts intricately detailed ceramic sculptural works inspired by the fragile beauty of ocean ecosystems—primarily coral reefs—and the human-caused threats they face. Courtney’s delicate and often large-scale ceramic sculptural works have been exhibited at prominent science and art venues. I love her sculptures, made with glazed stoneware + porcelain, rich of textures and organic patterns.
Born and raised in San Francisco, Courtney received an interdisciplinary Bachelor of Arts degree in marine ecology and ceramic sculpture from Skidmore College in 2008 and a Master of Arts degree in environmental studies from Brown University with coursework at the Rhode Island School of Design in 2011. She lives and works in Denver, Colorado where she runs her “Inland Sea Studio."
