Martin makes reduction-fired, mostly wheel-thrown stoneware. He trained in Farnham under renowned potters Henry Hammond and Paul Barron. Following a teaching career during which time he maintained his own studio, he is now focusing on his own work. Martin makes his glazes from natural materials including local clay and wood ash. These are applied when the work is still damp and all his pottery is fired just once. Decoration makes use of sgraffito, paper and brushwork resist, combing and sprigging and colour is often introduced through the use of clay slips.
