Martin’s work often has a Japanese influence in form, function or finish and all demonstrate his love of the Shibui principle of simple subtle and unobtrusive beauty. His specialist area of focus is the creation of both wheelthrown and handbuilt tea bowls, ceremonial and every day. This fascination with how different cultures approach and value drinking and eating vessels has lead Martin to work with chefs as well as private individuals, producing bespoke fine dining ware.
Siobhan creates microcosms; ceramic sculptures for domestic and corporate settings , which explore perspective, that where we choose to stand and how we choose to look, alters our emotional engagement with both internal and external landscapes. She integrates precious metals and unrefined foraged materials into her work.
