Fat Belly Pots
From: 11th June 2022
Until: 10th September 2022
Allow yourself to be drawn into Katherine’s work. Her oddly Medieval looking pieces are worth spending time with. The more you look, the more you begin to question, and that’s where the fun begins.
Katherine works in a shed in Newbury. She has a background in ceramics and teaching, making and mending, poking about in museums, mothering and general pottering. She also keeps a lively sketchbook and all of this feeds into her work.
Each piece is hand-built out of clay and fired to 1230C. She uses a mixture of applied, incised and hand-modelled detailing and adds colour using brush-on glazes, underglazes, slips and oxides. The surface is reminiscent of ancient frescos, with hints of the everyday and other, often slightly perplexing goings on. The toned down colours, rough edges and lack of uniformity add to this ancient quality. A quality which is often delightfully at odds with the subject matter.
