“My style and form have emerged from years of exploration and experimentation. I am inspired by the beauty of Oregon’s abundant flowers and find myself making many vessels to hold them.”
Barb Campbell is a predominantly self-taught artist with a degree in anthropology from Oregon State University. Now, in the middle of her career, she has been inspired by the art community of Oaxaca, Mexico to expand her practice to include collaborative art making. Campbell’s teaching credits include teaching hand-building techniques as a Visiting Artist at the University of Oregon and at Juniata College in Huntington, Pennsylvania. Her pottery is expressive and functional as a means to enhance every day life.
Barb Campbell has exhibited her work throughout the Northwest.
