Martin Staniforth, ‘Morth’, has been creating statements in sculpture and print-making for over 20 years, often dramatising narratives in the natural world and current affairs. Morth studied sculpture from life at Harrow College and then expanded his creative exploration on the Foundation Diploma in Art and Design at West Dean College. He loves clay and also practices in plaster, burnt wood, wax and bronze.
Alongside sculpture, Morth has developed printmaking techniques at Double Elephant in Exeter. He has adapted monotype printing in some of his paper-clay pieces.
Morth has run creative workshops for many groups including Southbank’s Being A Man Festival and with clients of charities SAFE (against domestic violence), Headway Devon (brain injury) and Hikmat (refugees).
In 2017 Morth gained funding support from the Devon Community Foundation for an integrated sculpture project. This was awarded the top prize at the TRAIL outdoor exhibition.
