Lion and Unicorn Specializes in Martin Brothers Art Pottery

Martin Brothers pottery has been around since the late 19th century, founded in the Martin family’s pottery works in London. The pottery was well-known for its distinctive style and unique glazing techniques. Martinware pottery is characterized by an array of colorful glazes and designs combined with an emphasis on texture and form.

Martinware pottery can be found in many museum collections worldwide, such as the Pitshanger Manor Hull Grundy Collection, the Southall Library in the Dominion Centre, the Norwich Castle Museum, and the Potteries Museum & Art Gallery. The Martin Brothers pottery collection at England’s Pitzhanger Manor features an especially wide range of their work.

The brothers’ work profoundly influenced pottery design in the Victorian era and beyond. They pioneered animal and bird forms and abstract shapes, which were not previously popular subjects for pottery.

In addition, their use of subdued colors and intricate decorative designs were highly influential, and one can see them in the work of many contemporary potters. The Martin Brothers’ influence is also readily apparent in the British Arts and Crafts Movement of the late 1800s, which the brothers’ work heavily influenced.

Martin Brothers pottery is highly sought-after by collectors today, and enthusiasts can find their pieces in museums and galleries all over the world. The brothers’ legacy lives on in the form of their distinctive and unique creations, which have inspired generations of potters and continue to delight and amaze them to this day.
