Bill Campbell Pottery


 

Bill Campbell has been a potter for over 30 years. Across the country, his porcelain is admired for its spectacular color and elegant crisp forms… each piece maintaining some of the energy of its creator. The glazes dance with surprising vibrancy in unexpected patterns. Functional pots become little moments of celebration within the day to day routine. Bill shares “my motive in making pottery is not terribly noble. I merely try to cause a little celebration in everyday living. You can’t imagine what I feel when my customers tell me how much they enjoy using one of my pots in their daily routine. When designing pots, I am always aware of the possibilities and limitations of the wonderfuldreadful layered glaze I employ. It often crawls, blisters, crazes and the color isn’t reliable. Though demanding, it is however, just too vibrant and exciting to simply dismiss as too troublesome. This means that everything must be technically perfect in order to achieve its full potential. Because I refuse to compromise in these processes, I have had to learn clay production and firing techniques that are not used in most studio potteries.”  Artisan’s has been selecting and buying American made pottery for over 32 years, Bill’s work has always stood out in the crowd because of its exceptional quality…from its functional design to its unique glaze it is truly one-of-a-kind.
