Watson, Kathryn


Kathryn is a Fine artist who makes sculptural ceramics for both indoor and outdoor spaces. Her work is hand built, she intuitively responds to the clay as it spirals and twists to create unique organic forms. As the clay dries it is carved, scraped and sometimes burnished. The work is rarely glazed allowing the different clay bodies and atmospheres of the firings to enhance the surface. Kathryn grew up in Sheffield and returned in 2012 to the family home where she now has a studio. Structures of both the man made and natural world are referenced in her work. City centre architecture, prehistoric carvings, millstones and rock formations on the edges of the Peak District and the flora and fauna of her garden all inspire.
