Martin Pearce creates alluring sculptural forms that recall and reinterpret shapes found in the natural world. Working from his East Sussex studio, he hand builds these biomorphic compositions using slabs and coils of white stoneware, layering on slips and glazes to create subtle surfaces that enrich the forms. The finished works feel at once familiar and enigmatic.
