Talk and Demonstration by Katie Smith
19 May at 10:00 am - 3:30 pm£20
Our next demonstration will be by Katie Smith, who writes:
The continually changing landscape fascinates me and has become the main influence behind my drawings and sculptural pieces. I am obsessed with how human touch has always had a huge impact on the world around us. Now, in urban life, we are surrounded by a new landscape where streetlights and signposts, chimneys and aerials have replaced the trees and rock forms of a more natural setting.
I use ceramic structures to create my own landscape of forms.
Shying away from heavy glazing use oxides and stains to colour my work. I love the raw, urban look that these give to my pieces. They highlight the textural and linear nature of the relief and celebrate the earthy properties of the material.
