Sharing One of Akron’s Best Kept Secrets!

This holiday season we would love to highlight a great local business that is a must-see when it comes time for gift-giving: Zeber-Martell Studio! For years the Zeber-Martell Studio has been the premier destination for buying unique pieces to enhance any space. Specializing in one-of-a-kind jewelry, wall art, vases, lighting, and custom commissions, they have something for everyone!

“My focus often combines forms, colors and dimensions found in nature. From the organic to geometric to the whimsical; I concentrate on developing positive images that enrich the environment and create harmony,” said Claudia Martell, half of the husband-wife duo that sets this gallery and clay studio apart from the rest. Claudia began her art career as a painter while husband, Michael, excelled in pottery. 

“Form is so much a part of our everyday lives, and I've been fortunate to explore it through clay; the slightest movement of the hands creates subtle changes in the shape of the pot. That is constantly amazing to me,” he remarked. For over two decades Michael has been evolving his style from traditional salt-glazed and wood-fired stoneware to expressive pieces with contemporary form. 

This power couple has learned how to marry their art in the most incredible way! Michael builds beautiful pieces of clay up into remarkable forms, Claudia then uses her experience as a painter to bring that form to life. Check out the time lapse video below to see just how much love and care goes into creating their incredible pieces! 

If you have ever been to Akron Children’s Hospital, you have surely felt the transformative energy of their collaborative work. “Hospitals hold a lot of stress, grief, and serious life conversations. Art can help transform a lobby into a warm environment and help others with their healing process,” said Claudia. Together this team rolled out an entire collection to bring warmth and healing to the hospital’s lobby; another testament to Zeber-Martell’s exceptional work!
