Marshall Colmans award winning ceramics make a beautiful addition to the modern home or a unique gift with a personal touch. He marries pottery and painting, using the tin-glaze technique, which reached its height in Renaissance Italy. Few British potters use this difficult method, in which the designs are painted on top of the unfired, powdery glaze with swift brush strokes that cannot be niggled or corrected. Applying a two-dimensional design to a three-dimensional shape is challenging and fascinating and Marshall enjoys the exploration of line, mark, colour and texture. Many influences combine in his work: old maiolica, fifties textile designs, abstract expressionist painting and Chinese calligraphy. HOW TO BUY MARSHALL COLMAN CERAMICS
