Matthew's sculptures are castings in bronze. After roughly ten years of experimentation, he has perfected how to make some of the most elaborate lost-wax castings the world will ever see. Every detail has been rendered by his hand, and rather than adopting a stylized approach, Matthew finds it most interesting to make his bonsai trees as realistic as possible. He also completes his sculptures with a minimal number of castings, alleviating the dependency on fabrication. The sheer complexity of the work and his unwavering preference to preserve the techniques of traditional lost-wax casting, has made the task a daunting one. Matthew has found himself to be as much an enterprising inventor, experimentalist, and engineer as he had ever fancied himself an artist.

Matthew finishes his sculptures with a combination of traditional patina and his own proprietary patina, and seals them with a durable lacquer. They are currently offered as limited editions of ten. Each sculpture is engraved on the underside with the title, the scientific species name, the series number and limit, year of the casting, and his potter's chop as his signature. All of the bonsai pots included in Matthew’s sculptures began as his handmade ceramic originals, and the engraving is conducted post-casting.
