COMPELLED TO CREATE
Born and raised in British Columbia, Martha Sturdy has always been inspired and guided by the elements. Materials like mineral and salvaged Cedar find expression in her work — offering a reflection of a landscape that is itself bold, clean and strong.
Martha has always been enthralled with the scale of nature on the West Coast. Never delicate, but always pared down, her work finds a balance in its weightiness and a resolve in its proportion.
Each piece is an investment, in aesthetic and function. At Sturdy we release pieces that will be passed down the generations. Our work is created by hand and engenders a sense of confidence in those who are close to it.
WE HAVE A HISTORY
Martha and her work are always engaged in a conversation of scale. In 1978, with the limited resources of a young art school graduate, she was forced to adapt the proportions of her work. Her yen to create large pieces could not yet be fulfilled and so began working in a scale accessible to her — creating uncommonly large, wearable maquettes.
Sturdy went on to gain an international reputation as a leader in functional art and design. Her bold, iconic wearable sculpture was featured in ELLE, Vogue, and Harper’s Bazaar. As Martha’s creativity evolved her collection developed to a series of sculptural home furnishings using resin, steel, brass and salvaged cedar.
The STURDY studio has since expanded to provide sophisticated, enduring custom furniture and fixtures for upscale retail and hospitality clients including, Louis Vuitton, Saks, Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus, Four Seasons, and Fairmont.
Quality, integrity of design, and balance are signature elements of a STURDY piece, each individually made to be enjoyed, touched, used, and seen for years.
Because as Martha has taught us, creativity and beauty should be evident in everything we do. A well articulated space supports peace of mind, and peace in general.
