Katie Netley

My exuberance and zest for life naturally transpires into my sculptural works with liberal use of bright expressive colours, representations of organic life and voluptuous female form.

I love to learn about different cultures from far and wide and allow my observations to inspire me; the raw celebration of ritual, the significance of dreams and geometric recurring patterns are all themes I explore within my work.

I like to spend time with my clients exploring and translating their ideas into personalised totem pole sculptures. Sculptures are weather proof and are suitable to be placed in your garden. Clients may specify the height they would like as the totems are made in sections.

My recent works have been focused on exploring the influences of totemic tribal artefacts.

I specialise in pottery and totem poles in particular. My eye-catching totem poles stand between 2m and 3m high and are fired in a variety of colours.

“Each totem pole is totally different. They tell a story. My job is to sit down with a client and listen to the tale they want to tell. I try to get a feel for the emotions and passions behind the narrative. Then I interpret it in clay and put together a totem pole, which retells their story from the bottom of the totem pole to the top (though it could always be the other way round!). It is a very collaborative affair and I am often bouncing ideas off clients and visa versa.”
