A little soda glazed ware today. Don't you just love the bubbly, drippy surface of a salt/soda glazed pot? I love these forms as well. And those curvy handles!!!
"Mark Compton is a ceramics artist and potter, based at Westbury Farm Studios, Shenley Wood, Milton Keynes. He uses his own hand made moulds to produce unique pieces of work, extruding handles and spouts from his own hand made dyes.
Mark’s sources of inspiration combine the natural world of plants with machinery, suits of armour and aircraft, following his interest in engineering and manufacturing. He looks at the shapes coming from the processes of construction, merely alluding to these shapes and forms in his work."
Mark studied for a while at university, then took jobs in several pottery factories. He returned to college in Cardiff, Wales and finished his degree. Mark has studied with UK legends Mick Casson, Geoffrey Swindell and Walter Keeler.
