Victoria Rose Martin (USA)

International Artist

Light-hearted, whimsical with a little darkness, hand built clay forms with no two exactly the same, decorated with stamped words and a variety of finishes – behold the beautiful sculptured ‘dolls’ of Victoria Rose Martin. Her work is a reflection of life. The pieces are memories of people, places and things she has known. In the small faces she can see members of her family, people she once knew, and even herself.

Victoria Rose Martin lives in Florida and works as an artist and professor of art and graphic design. Her art is collected both nationally and internationally and is in the permanent collection of the Cafesjian Center for the Arts, Armenia. She was also commissioned to paint Pop Art inspired murals at the Venue in London, England. Her sculptural work has appeared in several publications: including Ceramics Ireland, Art Doll Quarterly.

Victoria Rose Martinsa work is a reflection of life. The pieces are memories of people, places and things she has known. In the small faces she can see members of her family, people she once knew, and even herself. The work tends to be whimsical with a slightly dark under current. There is also an exploration of traditional women’s activities or hobbies such as dolls and craft.

Her sculptural forms are hand built using low-fire clay. Which is why no two figures will ever be exactly the same. The surfaces are decorated with stamped words and a variety of finishes, including oxides, under glaze, and glaze.
