Stunning Ceramic Platter Collection by Mark Hearld



Mark Hearld is a printmaker and a ceramic artist born in 1974. Ever since he was a little boy he loved animals and nature. His work is heavily influenced by flora and fauna of the British countryside. Now the multi-media artist creates oil and watercolors, collages, textiles, 3D pieces, hand-painted ceramics, posters, book covers, limited edition lithographs and linocuts. I have featured his wonderful work on the blog before. This post is dedicated to his stunning slipcast and hand-painted platters inspired by birds and animals.

He has worked in collaboration with Faber & Faber and Tate Museums. His collages were published by Walker Books for a children's book. St Jude's, an online art gallery made an introductory film on Mark's inspirations and working methods. 

You can learn more about his work and get updates on his upcoming shows by following him on Instagram.
