Minh Martin believes the objects we surround ourselves with should engage our affections, pique our imaginations, and elevate our collective identity. He believes that art and craft are the antidotes to throw-away culture, and that by making durable and precious objects, we enrich ourselves and ensuing generations.
Martin uses traditional tools and techniques. Starting with clear glass at 2,000 degrees, he adds detail and color throughout the process using solo techniques mastered over years of experimentation. Metals such as silver and titanium are a signature of his work and create dazzling finishes. His current collections explore surface design utilizing cameo techniques and precious metal enamels.
