Katie Smith

By carving, moulding and hand building Katie creates landscape inspired pieces, invoking a sense of depth and atmosphere using varied textures, darkening oxides and touches of glaze.

 

Her love of the ancient and historical influences the surface of Katie's ceramic work. Whether it’s a beautifully hand-carved stone relief or simply an unusual pattern eroded naturally onto a rock.  

 

Katie is always travelling with her sketchbook, working in pen, ink and the occasional watercolour she crams her sketches full of the interesting, little details as well as entire scenes.
