Stride, Kate


Clay is a fantastic media to work with as it lends itself to shape, colour, texture and surface design. I’m drawn to working figuratively because it’s expressive, I appreciate the curvilinear and the fragile or solid forms and shapes created by the female human body. I really enjoy working with bold colour, experimenting with different glazes and firings, and digging up clay from a local reservoir which fires a sandy colour at the lower earthen ware temperature, and a lovely deep red at the higher stoneware temperature.
