Martin Pearce

Biography

The development of form is at the root of Martin's work; the interplay of shape and surface creating the individual character of a piece. Non-figurative in nature, the pieces present many points of reference. These may be biomorphic, molecular or perhaps topographical. Ideas emerge during the making of a piece and after completion. He enjoys the ambiguity that this type of abstraction provokes, raising questions for the viewer and the maker.

Working from his studio in East Sussex, Martin develops several pieces at once, building the forms using slabs and coils of clay. The surfaces are finished with layers of slips and glazes designed to express form and character. Many pieces are multiple fired.
