Artists

Originally from Chicago, Marty moved to California in '77 and befriended his neighbors, who were ceramic artists. Once he was introduced to clay, there was no going back! He was immediately drawn to the translucency of porcelain, and started experimenting with this challenging medium. Then he was introduced to Lithophanes, a lost 19th Century art, in which a detailed engraving in porcelain, when lit from behind, comes alive with photographic realism. That has been his specialty for 30 years.
