Decorating Through Disassembly: Jeff Campana’s Sliced and Spliced Porcelain Pottery

Posted On September 20, 2010 21 Comments

There are many, many ways to put lines onto posts – carving, fluting, painting, drawing – but, I have to say, I had never seen anyone doing it quite like Jeff Campana. Jeff takes his well-thrown porcelain pots, chops them up into pieces, and then reassembles them. Then to top it all off, he uses glazes that pool in the seams. Today, Jeff shares his technique and how he arrived at such a labor intensive process in the first place.

On the Cover: Mike Jabbur’s liquor service, 12 in. (30 cm) in height, glazed porcelain and unglazed earthenware.

Theme: Throwing
It’s time to break out of those winter doldrums and get psyched with some fresh ideas for spring! We’ve got some hot projects and groovy techniques we think you’ll really enjoy. They’re not too complicated and allow for a lot of creativity. You’ll have fun displaying your thrown pieces in a handbuilt unit, or maybe you’d like to try your hand at cutting apart your work and reassembling it. David Hendley demonstrates how to take extruded forms and finish them off on the wheel, while Keith Phillips wows us with his salt and pepper shakers. The sooner you get to the studio, the sooner you’ll have some new pieces made.

Studio Visit: Jeff Campana, Louisville, Kentucky

Posted On October 7, 2009 1 Comment

My studio is the main perk associated with my position as
visiting artist in the ceramics program at the University of Louisville. The
setting is urban and industrial, with the constant rumble of planes landing and
trains passing by. I have a large private space (10 × 27 feet) that opens into
the main ceramics studio classroom.
