About The Artist
Matthew Armbrust received his B.A. in Music from Central Washington University (CWU). While in attendance at CWU, he studied the violin under Carrie Rehkopf and Heather Netz of the Kairos String Quartet.
Likewise Matthew is a ceramicist with a focus on functional ware. As a ceramicist he has been an artist in residence and the head of ceramics studios for multiple organizations including: Holden Village, a retreat center in the North Cascades of Washington State, and Gallery One in Ellensburg, Washington.
At the center of Matthew’s work is a drive to beautify and bring appreciation to the pieces of our lives that are important, but typically conceived of as mundane. Matthew likes to bring beauty to things ranging from soap-dishes to garden paths.
