Polehampton Church of England Junior School : Katie Smith talk

West Forest Potters events - non members contact www.westforestpotters.org.uk for information and to attend this interesting talk by a leading potter.

Katie uses ceramic structures to create her own ‘landscape' of forms. By using plaster moulds to create the original organic shape she proceeds to carve into the moulds. Allowing her to create three dimensional drawings which she can constantly change and adapt. Shying away from heavy glazing, Katie uses oxides and stains to colour her work. She loves the raw, urban look that these give to her pieces. They highlight the textural and linear nature of the relief and celebrate the earthy properties of the material.
