Isla Clay

Martina designs and explores the relationship between colour, image, and form. Each piece is designed and handcrafted in her studio. Bright and bold colours, black carved geometric patterns and abstract or classic yet organic-looking shapes translate every piece of her ceramic jewellery into wearable art; perfect for young and youthful women with vibrant hearts.

Martina has always liked creating with hands; in fact, it is her first memories of drawing flowers and animals with her dear Gran as a four-year-old. She can still clearly remember the day when she first felt she wanted to work with clay. It was on a sunny summer day when she was lying on a small hill on Berneray, an island in the Outer Hebrides. It took a few years before she actually ordered a kiln and bought her first chunk of clay, but that feeling never left her.
