Accidental Expressionist

A tea set comprising a remake of a Susie Cooper fine bone china teapot and two varying cups and saucers with both pattern and solid coloured glaze effects. The expressionist nature is paramount as it allows for personal curation with the ability to mix and match from a series of solid and patterned items all from Thompson’s sublime colour palette.

Martyn Thompson

Photographer, Martyn Thompson, began his career making clothes before deciding to document them instead. He worked as a fashion photographer in Paris prior to moving to London where his scope broadened into the world of interiors and still life.

Over the past 30 years Thompson has collaborated with several designers – most notably a long relationship with Ilse Crawford. He has worked to create the visual messaging of leading global brands such as Hermés and Ralph Lauren while also authoring two books, “Interiors” and “Working Space: An insight into the Creative Heart”.

A resident of New York now for many years, Thompson founded Martyn Thompson Studio, a multidisciplinary out t that has branched out from Thompson’s distinctive photography practice into a number of creative expressions. An aesthetic, anchored in the touch of the hand, stems from Thompson’s love of craft, and runs through his studio’s work, de ned by a tactile and painterly language that is a visual push me, pull me between nostalgia and now.

The studio has evolved to include textile and wallpaper design, homewares, limited edition art, as well as art direction for editorial projects. In addition Martyn Thompson Studio works with a number of brands as a creative consultant giving direction on the areas that help shape and de ne a visual identity: color, mood and tactility.
