Tim Martin is a London-based ceramicist with a background in architecture and fine art. His practice references the connection and dis-connection with the urban built environment. Pieces are typically abstract assemblages inspired by downtown LA and other cities he has lived in. Gas stations, street facades, discarded signage, distant mountains, wastelands and grand architecture. All of these excite him for their sculptural qualities and combination of high and low materials.
This collection for Thrown is inspired by the mountains, freeways, and urban landscapes behind the Hollywood Hills.
Tim has a Degree in Architecture from Sydney University, Australia, and a Bachelor of Arts in Design Studies from the University of New South Wales, Australia. He is now based in London and has recently completed the Diploma of Ceramics at City Lit.
