Known for Her Resin and Steel Furniture and Fine Art, Canadian Artist Martha Sturdy Returns to Wearable Sculpture after 20-Year Hiatus

VANCOUVER, British Columbia--()--Martha Sturdy unveiled yesterday a limited collection of wearable sculpture 20 years after her original designs were featured in glossy fashion magazines and on the runways at Donna Karan, Oscar de la Renta and Marc Jacobs. Launched at Vancouver’s IDSwest interior design show, there are nine pieces in the new collection of brass and resin.

“I have a passion for creating and I’m always making something whether its sculpture for the body, wall or table”

“I have a passion for creating and I’m always making something whether its sculpture for the body, wall or table,” said Martha Sturdy, a trained sculptor from Vancouver’s Emily Carr University. “Four years ago I started making rings and bracelets for myself and when I’d wear them out people asked me where they could buy them. Then a recent newspaper article mentioned these new pieces and again people wanted to see them so I decided to launch a small, limited collection for those who like my work.”

Sturdy’s new collection of wearable sculpture is largely spherical which is reminiscent of the hay bales that dot the fields at her British Columbia farm. The spheres are also often seen in her fine art and sculpture.

Martha Sturdy’s new collection of wearable sculpture is available starting October 1, 2014 and can be purchased at her Vancouver studio which is now open to the public five days a week (12 W 5th Avenue, Vancouver, BC). It can also be purchased over the phone by calling +1-604-872-5205. Prices range from $300 to $1,200 CAD. For more information please visit www.marthasturdy.com.
