Martin is recognised as one of the leading glassmakers and designers in the UK today. His work is known for its high quality, attention to detail and innovative surface treatments.
Since graduating his work has gained international acclaim. His pieces are exhibited all around the world as well as in the UK. The inspiration for his work often comes from the natural world around us, in particular water and the landscape around him, which he attempts to capture within the molten glass.
Martin designs and hand blows his work in fine crystal glass from the furnace. The patterns in his work are produced by melting coloured glass in different layers of molten glass (1050 degree C) and gradually building up the design. This involves new and traditional techniques. Each item is made individually and so is unique. Additionally, each piece is signed by the artist.
