Tim Martin constructs unique, mysterious and elegant ceramic sculptures and vessels. They stem from an architectural background, and a love of 20th Century minimalist modernist artists such as Arp, Miró, Brâncusi, Ellsworth Kelly, inspiring a reductive approach to his making.
His work distills landscapes, figures and natural objects to their simplest forms. They aim to push an emotional response - a memory, a human pose, an exotic garden, a hint of something familiar, yet enigmatic, ambiguous.
The sculptures suggest a layered and graphic aesthetic, often playing off each other as assemblages.
In 2019 Tim was one of 21 selected artists at Fresh in the British Ceramics Biennial in Stoke-on-Trent, UK
Fresh celebrates the UK’s most talented recent ceramics graduates and is one of the flagship exhibitions in the British Ceramics Biennial festival. Fresh celebrates and gives a critical platform for the new wave of makers, artists and designers working in clay as they begin their creative careers.
Tim has subsequently been awarded three international residencies; the International Ceramics Studio at Kecskemét, Hungary, March - June 2020, the Guldagergaard Residency at the International Ceramic Research Center, Denmark also in 2020 and the JCI International Research Residency at Jingdezhen Ceramic Institute, China in 2021.
