Karen Dawn Curtis

category: Ceramics   

region: Wales   

Karen has produced predominantly aesthetic art pieces for many years but has recently rediscovered throwing and has become struck by the unique appeal of ceramics as functional art. Inspired by the Brecon Beacons, her ‘Home’ collection explores the point where beauty and practical purpose meet.

Always fascinated by the naked surface of clay, Karen adds oxides to the clay body to create the exterior colours without having to mask the natural texture of the material. The interior surfaces are glazed to ensure that they are food safe. In developing these glazes, she’s discovered a rich palette of colours which are reminiscent of South Wales itself. This work is art which will be touched, used and treasured.

My passions are for clay and plants, which stems from my occupation as a gardener. I combined both these interests on my degree course in ceramics at Cardiff School of Art & Design. Since graduating in 2009, I have worked in a shared ceramic studio exploring the effects of shape, pattern, silhouettes, shadows, and contrasts […]

Katherine Fortnum Ceramics

category: Ceramics   

region: Midlands   

Hand built decorative ceramic sculptures inspired by structures in nature and particularly delicate natural forms; created through playful experimentation, pushing the limits of the fragility of the clay qualities within the forms through the ceramic process. Interesting qualities emerged as I began using smaller elements creating complex structures which were much more delicate. Each unique piece is extremely challenging and time consuming to make as every element is individually constructed.
Katherine graduated with BA (Hons) in Design Crafts, specialising in ceramics; from DeMontfort University 2013. Her workshop is based in Leicestershire, England.

You can find Katherine’s work at craft fairs throughout the year or via her website; where you will find a range of functional ceramics; including homewares, vases, bowls, coasters and more. Commissions Welcomed.

Katherine runs Ceramics workshops which are great for anyone looking to learn a new skill whilst creating something beautiful and unique. Whether there’s a specific item you wish to make or simply just to have a play and explore the world of clay, there’s a range of workshops available designed around you.

I produce hand-painted decorative porcelain jugs, cups, cake stands and brooches using a variety of slip casting and hand-building techniques. Each piece is essentially a canvas for decoration and collage as I combine drawings with found ephemera. I am inspired by nostalgia, old paper ephemera, vintage textiles and a love of drawing. I am fascinated […]

My work has always had a textiles influence behind it, the structure of fabric and the free forms that the creases and folds created has become the backbone of my pieces. Combining textiles with porcelain in unconventional ways, pushing the boundaries between the marriage of textiles and ceramics has been the inspiration behind my work. I have two […]
