We’re Matty and Travis, and we welcome you to our artful corner of the world. We married in New York in 2019, and with the shakeup of 2020, moved to the coast of North Carolina to form Otho Studio—a source for curators of expressive dwellings to find original sculptural creations. Here, we create objets d’art and functional pieces that go beyond the ordinary to become friends to your space. We design and sculpt every piece by hand with meticulous care from concept to finishing.
We believe that home is the sanctum within which to express your truest self. From lifelong backgrounds in art and design, we combine our deep love of art history’s traditional materials and techniques with an irreverent perspective and relaxed attitude. Celebrating the pleasures of life by bringing joy and personality into living spaces is a privilege. Stepping into the role of the Artist-Designer is an honor.
Plaster is our medium of focus as we launch. We adore its historical versatility and variety of applications, from the dazzling frescos of the great masters, and intricate and ornate details of diverse architectural eras, to the functional-yet-artful creations of 20th century sculptors and designers.
As Otho grows, you will find an expanded lighting offering as well as other sculptural pieces for personal and shared spaces. We are excited to continue building relationships with members of the trade. Head over to our Trade Program page to discover the perks of creating an account, including special pricing and tax free checkout.
Pablo Picasso famously said, “Every child is an artist, the problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.” We know that art is the celebration of life itself, and we hope to bring some of that spark into your space. It’s a pleasure to get to know you, and we can’t wait to create together.
