Martha Bogert's recent explorations in porcelain celebrates process and whimsy in equal measure. The designs are fun and functional, sculptural and graphic, toyetic and elegant. Japanese kawaii culture, western cartoons, and video-games are rich influences informing the work.
Her training in ceramics started at an early age. As a teenager she learned raku, Eastern style throwing, on the hump and other Asian techniques that are still part of her broader approach today. During her university years her style was very organic, abstract, and large-scale.
Before practicing ceramics, Martha was an illustrator, digital designer, and art educator. She holds degrees in fine arts and computer science from SVA and NYU. She lives in London with her partner and two cats.
