Alison Campbell Ceramics

Born in Canada, Alison Campbell is a potter and jeweller who travelled the world before finally settling on the edge of the Pennines in the UK. Alison works entirely in porcelain and her love of its density, strength and texture play a central part to the development of her work.

I adore these particular pieces of work - with ultra smooth surfaces, which have been polished to within an inch of their lives - the vases are high-fired, which means they are vitrified and watertight. Not only are they beautiful stand alone pieces, they can also be used a fully functional vessels.
