Mark Campden’s work is distinctive for the skill of his brushwork decoration, rich in imagery inspired by nature. 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. Each detail in Mark’s work is hand painted onto the piece in fluid brushstrokes. For the last few years Mark has been making reduced pigment lustreware, a new direction that is equally rewarding and challenging. Constant observation of life in the natural world provides Mark with the endless wealth of imagery which infuses his work.
