Claudia Zeber-Martell began as a painter, and surface decoration is therefore a dominant element in her work, with images balanced between internal visualization and external stimuli. Michael Martell's pottery has evolved over the past two decades from traditional salt-glazed and wood-fired stoneware to expressive graceful pieces with more contemporary form.
Collaboration can be an enriching process for two artists, and by challenging each other, a balance is achieved, and the contribution of each person's particular skills has here resulted in a product that surpasses what each could achieve alone. "We enjoy the daily overlapping of our personal and professional lives, and we believe it enhances our individual creativity."
We love the pear sculptures that Claudia and Mike create. No two are alike other than they are beautiful!
