Geometry, small Glazed Ceramic Bowl


Geometry, a small glazed ceramic bowl by Katherine Kingdon.

Katherine explains the inspiration behind her work, "When I eavesdrop on people looking at my work, I discover all sorts of stories evolving. Some that I’d thought of, and some that I hadn’t.  I love that.. It makes me feel as if my creativity makes a space for other people’s creativity.

The pictures on my pots come into being through a simple game. I attach random patches of clay in roughly human proportions and then work them into characters. I like to leave some ambiguity. I want you to puzzle over the pictures, so your imagination begins to build a story."

The bowl measures approximately 11cm diameter by approximately 10cm high.

This piece can also be purchased using Own Art - interest free credit, payable in 10 equal monthly direct debit instalments of £15 - contact the gallery for full details and an online application.

 Artist Statement – Katherine Kingdon

I use clay to make figurative sculptures and illustrated vessels and am always looking for meaning in the random and irrelevant. In my current work I am having fun exploring character through pose, facial expression and sometimes text. I enjoy the suggestions of stories that develop and the dynamics within a group of figures. My intention is to draw you in, to make you smile, to fire your imagination.

 I have been teaching in the Oxfordshire/Berkshire area for many years. I was Head of Art at Chiltern Edge School in Sonning Common in the early 2000’s and then ran the Ceramics Department at The Henley College. Any teaching that I do now is much more ad hoc. I spend most of my time in my Newbury based studio, creating pieces to commission and which I sell online and through galleries and craft fairs.
