mattsimmsceramics is my home to sell, display, and share my ceramic work, my process, and anything I think might benefit you. I make custom ceramic scuplture and pottery in Missoula, Montana. Work is dishwasher and microwave safe and fired in a variety of kilns in western Montana.

Matt Simms has been an art teacher, fly fishing guide and ceramicist in Missoula, Montana for over 20 years. He focuses his atmospheric firings on combining the marks of the artist and the passage of fire over the clay to preserve that relationship.  Matt has fired his sculptural and utilitarian work in a wood kiln he built in Maxville, Montana, and at the Clay Studio of Missoula’s anagama and soda kilns. He earned a B.A. in Fine Arts from Lewis and Clark College after growing up in Colorado and Southern California. Matt’s work has been exhibited in Missoula and beyond, sold privately, and donated for auction.
