I studied at the Maastricht Academy of Applied Arts (Academie voor Toegepaste Kunsten), and specialized in Fashion Design. After having received my degree in 1990, I started my own design Studio in 1991. At once I started looking for my personal signature within my creations. This brought me into contact with as widely ranged materials such as glass and ceramics, which I have used extensively over the years. (www.raoulmartin.com)
My style is a collection of a number of, at first view, contradictory sources where nature is my biggest inspiration. It’s mainly it’s organic lines and shapes that I prefer to use in my designs.
Another main source of inspiration are the Middle Ages and most of all the heraldry and the mysticism of the era.
Last but not least, I truly admire the Italian Renaissance because of the exuberant use of different colors in it’s architecture and fabrics.
