Craig Martell of Salem, Oregon has been a studio potter for 30 years. His work reflects a great understanding of color and texture achieved from years of experimentation with firing and glazing. His functional work, ceremonial in form, is elegant and sensuous. Flashes of pinks and blues are balanced with mellow, soft browns that are emphasized with subtle surface texture. He has exhibited and sold his work across the country and has been included in private and museum collections throughout the United States and Japan.
