Martin Brothers

The four Martin brothers, Wallace, Walter, Edwin and Charles, were
pioneers in the production of studio pottery.  They became famous for their
eccentric, grotesquely modeled ‘Wally Birds’, wheel-thrown and sculpted face
jugs, vases and other items reminiscent of art and architecture of the Middle
Ages.  Some beautifully formed and expertly decorated and some eccentric.  They
produced a distinctive type of stoneware and specialized in salt-glazed
stoneware, a strong, non-porous pottery with a distinctive 'orange-peel'
texture.
