Martin Brothers

The Martin Brothers were renowned English potters in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, celebrated for their unique and imaginative stoneware. The four brothers, Wallice, Walter, Edwin and Charles, started their pottery studio in Fulham in 1873. Notable for their whimsical and often grotesque bird sculptures, their work also included a range of finely decorated vases, tiles, and other ceramic pieces. These creations are distinguished by their innovative glazes and detailed craftsmanship, making them highly sought after by collectors. Their most iconic pieces, the Martinware bird jars, exemplify their distinctive blend of artistry and humor.
