Lindy Martin

I grew up on the west coast of Wales listening to and watching waves crashing onto pebbles. Then playing on the beach with those pebbles; finding washed up objects, creating scenes and toys and making up stories.

I still bring these elements into my ceramic practice combining them with a sense of that playfulness. My work is always hand built and does not hide the marks which show how it was made. The material is not disguised either, I like to let the clay have a say in its form and texture.

Very often I will include muds and crushed rocks from the places I visit to add to the clay or for use in surface decoration, whilst ashes of plants and wood along with gathered rocks and minerals from these places form the basis of the glazes I create. I aim to make work that reflects the landscape, revels in its own materiality and intrigues the viewer with the possibilities of a narrative.

I graduated in 2014  with a First Class Honours Degree in Ceramics from the Carmarthen School of Art, where I now teach part time on the Foundation course.
