Every Basket Begins with a Walk in the Woods
Welcome! Matt Tommey is a world class sculptural basketry artist and teacher working in Asheville, North Carolina's River Arts District. Since the mid-1990's Matt's been creating art baskets for his clients that reflect the rustic elegance of nature. These days, Matt's woven art is featured in some of the most beautiful mountain homes in the country and is created from locally harvested bark, vines and branches. Whether you are looking for a special piece for your home or want to take one of Matt's basket weaving classes, you're in the right place!
Woven Art as Fireplace Mantel Decor
I love fireplaces! Most of the time in mountain homes, they are the focal point of the room. Beautifully stacked stones with rustic mantels. What's better? As beautiful as stone fireplaces can be however, I've heard from my clients that their fireplace mantel is one of the hardest spaces in their home to fill. Few people really know what to do with the space in order to make it shine and like it or not, it can be a problem space. When considering something for your fireplace mantel decor, I'd encourage you to consider one of my personalized fireplace mantel sculptures. I create them in all sizes based on your desires and of course the size of your room, mantel and fireplace surround. In addition, if you have property around your home which I can harvest from, I can actually come out to your place and harvest materials right from your property. This really makes your fireplace mantel sculpture special and something you can share with friends and loved ones for years to come.
Creating Something Just for You
Over my 20+ years of working with clients, one of the things I continue to enjoy most is the opportunity to work with clients to create unique pieces of nature-inspired art for their home. Many times, some of my best ideas actually come from clients who start dreaming with me about their home and how my work could add that special touch of rustic elegance. When working with an artist like me to include sculpture art baskets in your home, remember I can create custom work specifically for your design needs or you can come to my studio / gallery and purchase right off the shelf. Whether something for the wall or pedestal, fireplace mantel or shelf, I'd be happy to help you incorporate my work into your own rustic home decor.
Woven Copper Fire Pit
Everyone loves to enjoy the beauty of an outdoor fire pit. Especially here in the south, outdoor fire pits can be utilized regularly from spring all the way through fall and even winter! After weaving natural materials for over 20 years, I had a dream of creating a woven copper fire pit that was based on one of my sculptural art basket designs. The result is this unique fire pit!
Wall Art Decor for Elegant Mountain Homes
I love creating beautiful wall art for mountain homes out of locally harvested materials like bark, vines and branches. It's a great way to bring the outside inside while enjoying a beautifully elegant aesthetic. Check out some of the recent wall hangings I've created - by commission - for my clients. I'd love to create something special for your home, too!
Fireplace Mantel Sculptures for Elegant Mountain Homes
Creating unique sculptural pieces for the fireplace is one of the highlights of my creative expression! I love collaborating with my clients to harvest materials right from their property (if possible) and create a one-of-a-kind piece whose beauty and story will last a lifetime. Using locally harvested branches, vines, bark and even recycled copper allow me to create a woven vignette that tells the story of nature inside the beauty of your home. Even if you're not local to Western North Carolina, believe it or not, these pieces ship easily! I know how to pack them with care to ensure safe travel!
