Using distinctive and skilled brushwork, this jug by Mark Campden uses imagery inspired by nature and his local surroundings in Kilkenny. Featuring a pattern of swimming fish, delicately painted in tones of rich forest green and olive, this jug is perfect for serving summer refreshments, warming winter mulled wine, shared cocktails, or simply as a beautiful centrepiece.
Mark works in a traditional majolica technique, first forming his pieces in earthenware clay before being covered with a white tin glaze. The detailed surface of each jug is then delicately hand-painted. Each piece is decorated with fluid and organic brushstrokes, mimicking the flora and fauna of the local surroundings that Mark draws from. He also shares a studio in Kilkenny with partner and fellow ceramic artist Caroline Dolan.
Materials and care:
Each jug measures 14 cm in height x 10 cm in diameter. Each of Mark's pieces are dishwasher safe.
The Bridge Pottery uses a 100% green energy electricity provider for their electric kiln and locally sourced sustainable wood for their wood fire kiln. There is a strict quality control regime in place at every stage of the making process, so as to avoid producing 'seconds' or wasting materials and power. To optimise energy efficiency, each kiln load is packed to maximum capacity and only fired during off peak hours.
