Artist Statement: Clive Campbell – 60 cm x 60 cm – Fused glass mounted on toughened glass -includes fixings

I have always been interested in creating art and as a child I would draw birds in the garden or copy characters from comic books. My grandfather gave me a prism and that little piece of triangular glass captivated me. As an adult I explored pastel portraiture and wildlife drawing, but it wasn’t until after my children had grown up that I considered the possibility of art as a career.

I am now a full time glass artist working in stained and fused glass.

Over the years, I have developed techniques which allow me to create large scale art panels that are not constrained by the size of my kilns. The largest piece I have made so far is 3.6 mtrs. I work mainly to commission, but do create smaller works for sale. I have also recently started running introductory courses in stained glass, Tiffany work and fused glass art.

I am a big fan of artists like M C Escher and aspire to create imagery that offers a new experience to the viewer each time they see it. I am constantly learning and strive toward that unattainable goal of “a piece that is perfect in concept, design and execution”. I take great inspiration from the fabulously talented Japanese artist, Hokusai, who was reported to say “AlI I have done before the age of 70 is not worth bothering with. At 100, I shall be a marvellous artist”
