Martin's "Beach" range is one of his most popular. He calls this an oval bowl, but with its small opening to me it sits halfway between a bowl and a vase. 8 cm high by 15 cm wide.
Martin has been producing hand blown glass over 15 years. One of Britain’s highly recognised hot glassblowers, renowned for high quality work, skilfully made forms, with the highest attention to detail and innovative colour work and surface treatments. 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. Martin explores the qualities of the molten glass, clear and coloured, manipulating this amazing material at temperatures up to 1150 degrees centigrade. Investigating the relationship between light and a given form has been a continual theme throughout his career.
