Ceramic art

Martha Bogert's fine art ceramics celebrate process and experimentation in equal measure. Her work explores materiality, mark-making, fragility and light. The work frequently investigates themes of gender politics and technology. Her functional ceramics are sculptural, graphic and toyetic. Japanese kawaii culture, western cartoons & video-games influence her style. Martha's training in ceramics started at an early age. As a teen she learned raku, throwing on the hump, and other Asian techniques that remain part of her method today. During her university years in NYC her style was very organic, abstract, and large-scale. Before practicing ceramics, Martha was an illustrator, digital designer, and teacher. She holds degrees in fine arts, art education, and computer science from School of Visual Arts and NYU | Tisch ITP. She lives in Molesey, Surrey with her husband and Persian cats.
