One of Britain’s highly recognised hot glassblowers, renown for high quality work, skilfully made forms, with the highest attention to detail and innovative colour work and surface treatments. His designs offer a fresh and tactile approach.
Martin graduated from West Surrey College of Art and Design in 1991 with a BA (hons) Glass. He has been producing hand blown glass over 15 years and his work has been exhibited at international level and in noted exhibitions in Germany, Holland, Scandinavia, Canada and the USA, alongside many exhibitions at home in the UK.
Each piece is made by hand and signed by Martin. His work is often inspired by the earth’s natural forms and architecture, geometric patterns, movement and power. Most recently, he was stimulated to produce a new body of work from a fascinating trip to Borneo. As Martin is working with the glass he attempts to freeze a moment in time, capturing the very essence of the moving material that is molten glass.
