Martin is one of Britains highly recognised glassblowers, renown for high quality work, skillfully made forms, and innovative colour work and surface treatment.
Martin graduated from West Surrey College of Art and Design with a BA (hons) Glass in 1991. Following graduation, Martin was based in London up until 2000, when he launched his current workshop at the Ruskin Glass Centre in Stourbridge.
Martins designs offer a fresh and tactile approach to glass. His work is often inspired by the earths natural forms and architecture, geometric patterns, movement and power. More recently, Martin was stimulated to produce a new body of work from a fascinating trip to Borneo. In his work, Martin attempts to freeze a moment in time, capturing the very essence of the moving material that is molten glass.
Martins 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.
