Biography: 

“I work primarily in metal clay to create jewelry due to its versatility in creating organic shapes, limitless textures, and depth,” says Martha. “It wants to be carved, stretched, transformed. It lends itself to experimentation, and encourages you to push limits. I love that challenge!”
Martha has pursued multiple art forms as her work as an artist has evolved. She started with ceramics, then moved to fused glass and then to metals. “They all work together,” she says. “Working in clay led me to metal clay to create jewelry, which in turn led to metals fabrication. Along the way I began to take classes in fused glass in order to create more color in my jewelry.”
“What I learn experimenting with one medium often sparks a breakthrough in another. When I’m working in porcelain and have an “aha” moment in design, I wonder what that would look like in metal, in the smaller scale of jewelry. And off I go to explore the concept in metal clay.”
Martha creates jewelry in fine silver, bronze, and copper. She uses the keum boo technique to accent pieces with gold. Her work has been accepted in several of the Craft Guild of Dallas’s juried shows, where she exhibits both ceramics and fine silver jewelry.
