Mark produces handmade earthenware slip-decorated tableware, and sculptural ceramics in his Staffordshire studio. Inspirations include traditional Staffordshire slip trailing, industrial Stoke on Trent ceramics like Ridgway ‘Homemaker’ and Carlton Ware ‘Walking Ware’, and the anachronisms of 1950s and ‘60s sci-fi comics. He likes to combine traditional and industrial techniques in a contemporary take on Staffordshire slipware and figures.
