As an Australian ceramic artist my practice engages with landscape as a source of inspiration, whilst the anagama process provides my aesthetic framework. My making and firing are a reflection of the processes of nature, sometimes life giving, sometimes destructive. The outcome is not just a happy accident, though chance does play some part in the firing. It is the result of the inherent synergies of the making and firing processes informed by my conceptual framework and a desire to achieve a unique personal aesthetic.

‘The practice of Barbara Campbell-Allen over the last three decades reveals the evolution of an individual aesthetic which is formed and informed by an abiding connection with the creative possibilities of earth and fire.’
Trisha Dean ‘All that Is Solid’ Craft Arts International 76, 2009
