Katharine Morling Fine Ceramics. (England)
“My work has been a personal narrative, which alludes to tales, dreams and nightmares. I bring my drawings alive in 3D. My work is often life-size or larger; a chair will stand a metre tall. The work has been of a domestic nature, taking inanimate objects such as chairs and layering them with emotion. As I build up piece by piece, I have created rooms with atmosphere where unexpected feelings arise from apparently mundane objects.
I work very instinctively, one piece leads to the next, I try not to pin down what I am doing or even why. I have to trust and believe that I can communicate through this medium.
My searching is never complete; each piece is a journey for answers that are only hinted at, with more questions.
I predominantly work in clay but use other materials when I feel it is necessary: glass, string, wood, raffia and mirror.”
