About Matthew Krousey

Matthew Krousey received his BFA in ceramics from the University of Minnesota- Twin Cities. He is a current host of the St Croix Valley Pottery Tour. In 2018 he received both an Artist Initiative Grant through the Minnesota State Arts Board and an Essential Artist Award through the East Central Regional Arts Council. Matthew also recently participated in a panel discussion with Craft in America at the Library of Congress as part of the Veterans History Project. Krousey says his aim is to create a historical record of the vanishing natural world around him. “I use imagery of Minnesota’s native flora and fauna on ceramics to bring awareness to the viewer of the environment I know and love.”

Artist Statement

The preservation of a disappearing landscape through imagery on ceramics is the reason I create. Inspired conceptually by the regionalist painters of the early 20th century who sought to document the rural landscapes of America, I see myself as a modern Regionalist working with clay. I make pottery, murals, and sculpture decorated with the landscapes, flora, and fauna of our native habitats. My hope is that the daily use and viewing of the work will be a gentle reminder to the public of the vanishing natural world around us.
