The Matter Factory

Spare change, everyday objects and pottery form together in Andy Brayman’s Matter Factory. After reading an interesting article on Brayman's work in American Craft magazine, I was instantly attracted to his pottery pieces. Based in Kansas City, Brayman set up his businesses in a former 1930s farmer’s market that sits on the Missouri River and the Kaw River. Doesn't that sound amazing?

Not only does his studio have a great location, but the pottery created there is equally stunning. Like the Change Dish, a vessel made from coins found around the studio, and cups that reveal hidden text when filled with hot water. Brayman's pieces are beautiful, functional and memorable. Find out more over at The Matter Factory.

Ah. I just saw on the news yesterday that there's a serious coin shortage in Buenos Aires - nobody can explain why, and conspiration theories are flourishing. Maybe their coins end up at the Matter Factory?
