Welcome to fmceramics.com (Frank Martin Ceramic Artist), here you can find out all about my work, my inspirations and designs. Feel free to browse through the images of pots in the gallery of my work.

Since completing a studio ceramics course at Chesterfield College of Art and Design in 1980 I have continuously worked in ceramics.  I currently work from my studio near Burrowbridge in Somerset. Most of my current work is made to commission and I exhibit in galleries in the south west.

Over the years I have used many types of clay and techniques enjoying the variety that clay can offer. I have pieces in Raku, salt glazed stoneware and burnished earthenware. I currently use white stoneware clay fired in my electric kiln. My work ranges from large sculptures suitable for the garden or conservatory, to individually crafted ceramics, and includes a range of thrown domesticware pottery.

As well as actively making ceramics I also run periodic workshops. I am a member of the Westcountry Potters Association and have hosted ceramic events for the WPA at my studio, including a kiln building workshop weekend run by Steve Mills, and a masterclass run by Paul Young. 

I have been a Trustee for the Devon Guild at Bovey Tracey (2009-2011) and keen to promote ceramics as a career.

Alongside my ceramics work I am currently working with a partner to develop an Art Gallery in the Town Hall in Somerton. The gallery when completed will be Somarton Gallery and be a venue for local and international artists. Completion of this project is expected later in 2014.
