The Martin Brothers – A Private Collection

Comprised of nearly a hundred pieces, this collection includes an intriguing mixture of sculptural objects and pots, most notably featuring a small flock of Robert Wallace Martin’s ‘Wally birds’.

Eclectic to the core, the Martin Brothers' work bears the influence of art and architecture from the Middle Ages and Gothic periods, but much of their unique pottery exists in a category of its own. Among recognizable Martinwares, their sculpted ‘face jugs’, gothic stoneware vases and spoon warmers resembling monsters, portrayals of mythical creatures and classical figures, and the use of sea life motifs and other fantasy-imbued images are all very well represented in this collection.
