Martina Lantin is known for wheel-thrown and altered earthenware functional, and decorative ceramics. Lantin hand-builds work on occasion. Maiolica is the primary decorative technique. A white base glaze is applied to the surface and colored pigments applied. Surface decoration draws from Italian Renaissance maiolica and Persian slip-ware. Surface design concepts and graphics include multi-colored and monotone floral designs, patterned motifs, and curvilinear lines.
