MarMar is Martha Andrew. And she loves to move metal.
Inspired by naturally occurring structures, her work is reminiscent of crystalline formations and honeycomb networks. It examines the parallels between industrially manufactured “perfection” and the possibility of variations in natural repetition.
Using the ancient technique of chasing and repousse, she manipulates sheets of metal into high relief objects of curious beauty.
Martha resides in Rhode Island with her husband and two young boys. She owns a seasonal handmade jewelry boutique called “MarMar” on Block Island, RI.
