My name is Iain Campbell. I work from my studio, Ceramics at the Annexe, tucked up a little lane in the back garden of my house in Forres.
I have come to ceramics fairly late in life, discovering a passion for hand-building in clay, using coils, slabs and pinching to create tactile sculptural pieces.
I find the coast in Moray a huge source of inspiration, the changing light, the textures and colours of the stones and woods, the rolling farmlands.
I am excited to experiment with smoke and pit firing to create unpredictable finishes. I have also recently been drawn to work with raku firing using matt patinas.
The studio is open during the North East Open Studios event from 14 to 23 September 2019, otherwise by appointment only.
