Stephanie Nicole Martin

Stephanie Nicole Martin attended the University of North Carolina in Greensboro, and received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Design with a concentration in Ceramics. Stephanie works primarily with earthenware… making hand-built and wheel-thrown objects using color, pattern, floral, and figurative imagery to evoke a feeling of nostalgia.
She utilizes many printmaking techniques to build the surfaces of her vessels. Digital technology plays an important role in her process – making her own iron decals, and transferring them onto the clay. Watching her grandmother sew her dresses, and quilt as a young child influenced her sense of craft and design. Most of the images she uses are rooted in 1960’s and 70’s culture. Stephanie’s work continually intertwines history and memory, and perpetuates her nostalgia of being a young girl growing up in the rural foothills on western North Carolina in the 1970’s.
