Mark Campden has been a potter for over twenty years. Working in the traditional majolica technique, his pieces are first formed in earthenware clay and covered with a white tin glaze. The surface then becomes his canvas for meticulous decoration, in this case, a crow pattern, inspired by the hooded crows who frequent his Kilkenny garden. Each hand-drawn crow is full of character.
Each detail in Mark's work is hand-painted onto the piece in fluid brushstrokes, rich in imagery inspired by nature. He also shares a studio in Kilkenny with partner Caroline Dolan whose work we also love and is available from our online shop too.
Materials and care:
This bowl measures 14.5cm tall x 8.5cm in diameter, but sizes may vary slightly due to the handmade nature of the pottery. As with all of Mark's work, this bowl is dishwasher safe. Sold individually.
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.
