Creation comes in all shapes, sizes and colors, and our second Fresh cREator knows a thing or two about fantastic shapes. Viviana Matsuda, aka @mud.witch is a clever and fun ceramic artist out of San Francisco known for their curved shapes inspired by the body positivity movement.
Pottery wasn’t Vivana’s originally chosen career path, but it’s almost as if the art form found them. When their father unexpectedly passed away a few years ago, they inherited his beloved collection of pottery tools and, as a healing mechanism for their grief, dove into learning about and transforming clay.
Grief, like artistic creation, is a process that takes on many forms and ultimately lead Vivana to share their work, and their story, on instagram.
Their vessels of all kinds (from drinking glasses to mugs, vases and more) are an instant hit with followers, who patiently wait for limited-release product drops.
Their favorite Revive flavor when they need a pick-me-up in the studio? Blackberry Grape. You might say this colorful fizz fits right into their rainbow studio style.
