The passage of time and the ability of objects to connect us with our past are constant sources of inspiration for Kate’s work in clay.
Her collection of boxes, jugs, vessels and bound containers are conceived as small scale installations. Pots are carefully positioned to highlight the relationship between the interior and exterior. Using the unique effects of raku firing, Kate creates pieces with distinctive crackles and smoked textures, which convey a timeless quality.
Kate studied Ceramics and Visual Art at the University of Brighton. She has exhibited internationally since 1996, with a major show at Blackwell in 2008. Her work has been commissioned for private and public collections, including British Airways, the British Embassy, The Walker Art Gallery and Cowley Manor. She is a Professional Member of the Craft Potters Association and works from her studio in rural West Kent.
