Martha Daniels approaches her ceramic work as both a painter and a sculptor. She is known for covering the surfaces of small as well as monumental forms with opulent, textured layers of glaze, varnish, gilt, paint, metal, and even nail polish. Her unconventional techniques, combined with Mediterranean and Asian influences, place her work in both ancient and contemporary contexts. Be sure to check out Daniels’ work in the DAM’s exhibition Focus: Earth and Fire, located on the fourth floor, Hamilton Building.
