Martin Smith: ceramics, 1976-1996
Martin Smith, the most abstract and geometrically oriented ceramicist in England, draws inspiration from the manner in which artists of the past gave form to their experiences. This book celebrates 20 years in which Martin Smith has been continuously intrigued by form and ideas about the interior and the exterior. He took the vessel as his subject, and clay to work with, though at times he has added metal or stone components. Within these limitations he has made a great variety of forms. The work reveals a journey from light floating pots to massive, heavy-looking loaded ones, capturing the essence of ceramic vessels in great freedom, creativity, and brilliance.
