About the Artist

Tim Martin is a London-based ceramicist. With degrees in Architecture and Design Studies from Sydney University and the University of New South Wales, Australia, Tim also gained a diploma of ceramics from City Lit, London, in 2019.


Tim’s work draws on his architectural background and a love of 20th Century minimalist modernist artists such as Arp, Miró, Brâncusi, Ellsworth Kelly, inspiring a reductive approach to his making.


His work distills landscapes, figures and natural objects to their simplest forms. They aim to push an emotional response - a memory, a human pose, an exotic garden, a hint of something familiar, yet enigmatic, ambiguous.


The sculptures suggest a layered and graphic aesthetic, often playing off each other as assemblages.


In 2019, on completing his ceramics diploma, Tim was shortlisted for the New Designers Designer of the Year award as well as selected for Fresh at the British Ceramics Biennial.


Tim has subsequently shown in solo and group exhibitions and awarded three international residencies:  the International Ceramics Studio at Kecskemét, Hungary, March - June 2020, the Guldagergaard Residency at the International Ceramic Research Center, Denmark also in 2020 and the JCI International Research Residency at Jingdezhen Ceramic Institute, China in 2021.


His collection for Trace has been created while on a second residency at Guldagergaard International Ceramic Research Center and feature his first work created with a garden site in mind.
