Stephanie Nicole Martin attended the University of North Carolina in Greensboro, and received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Design with a concentration in Ceramics. She works primarily with earthenware… making hand-built and wheel-thrown objects using color, pattern, floral, and figurative imagery to evoke a feeling of nostalgia.
She utilizes many printmaking techniques to build the surfaces of her vessels. Digital technology plays an important role in her process – making her own iron decals, and transferring them onto the clay. Watching her grandmother sew her dresses, and quilt as a young child influenced her sense of craft and design. Most of the images she uses are rooted in 1960’s and 70’s pop-culture. Her work continually intertwines history and memory, and perpetuates her nostalgia of being a young girl growing up in the rural foothills on western North Carolina in the 1970’s.

Make sure you check the specific dimensions of the work so you will know the exact scale before you purchase. My mugs and cups are all different sizes, some larger than others, so be sure to check the measurements to suit your functionality.

Note*** If you would like to purchase more than one item, I will mail you a check for the excess shipping fees.

Thank you for checking out my shop!✨🙏🏻🌟

    I just love my new BlackBird Studio NC Harry Styles mug! The image of Harry is awesome but what really inspired me to purchase it is the artwork by the amazing artist & maker, Stephanie. I just couldn’t resist the beautiful butterfly and all the lovely flowers. 🦋 I also love that there is a yellow dandelion too. (Or a wonderful doppelgänger of one!) Some of my most favorite things about Stephanie’s artwork is that to me it celebrates nature, music and artists. ✨🍃✨ Stephanie’s artwork makes life seem magical✨. The craftsmanship is always fantastic. My items always arrive packaged wonderfully & thoughtfully. Thank you again Stephanie for always such amazing transactions! Cheers to you and have the best holiday season! I will shop here again! ☺️💕💫

    I have always wanted one of BlackBird Studio NC’s Lin Manuel Miranda mugs. 🌸🍵🌟But I had never been fast enough to get one before it sold out. I reached out to the most wonderful artist, Stephanie to ask her if she could make one for me. Stephanie was so awesome and said that she could! 💫 I received my LMM mug today and I am so happy! I love 💕 the artwork and excellent craftsmanship. I have quite a few BlackBird Studio NC’s mugs and they are all my favorites! One day I’ll have the coolest tea party ever! ✨My packages from Stephanie are always carefully and thoughtfully packed. A lovely note is always included. Thank you Stephanie for the candy 🍭, bubblegum, bookmark and sticker too! ✨☺️I will shop here again! Happy Holidays! 🌟

    This past summer I had the opportunity to revive a sweet little bumblebee by giving it sugar water from a tube. It was a great relief & a highlight for me when it flew away after regaining its energy. I wanted to remember that moment in some way. I thought one of BlackBird Studio NC’s Magical Meadow Dream mugs would be a perfect way to commentate the moment with the addition of bumblebees. I reached out to the lovely artist and maker Stephanie who was so kind and said she could make my dream mug! Needless to say I am beyond thrilled with the way it turned out. It’s so beautiful, whimsical and wonderful! I absolutely love 💕 it! Stephanie’s artwork always makes me so happy and my bumblebee mug puts a huge smile on my face. Thank you so much Stephanie! I appreciate you and your art is a joy! Have the happiest of holidays! 💫☺️💕
