KATHERINE STAPLES CERAMICS

Katherine Staples makes free standing, wall mounted, indoor and outdoor ceramic sculptures for commissions and exhibition.

 

CERAMIC SCULPTURES

My work does not replicate nature, but has similarities. Inspired by the natural world it captures nature's energy, movement and forms. More specifically natural forms that have an association with the sea and items left behind by the sea on the beach. Contemporary shapes are hand built using traditional methods with an emphasis on form and fragile flowing edges, creating a personal interpretation of natural forms. Energy flows directly into each piece incorporating spirit and mood, swallowing emotions and thoughts as each piece grows.

 

WALL HUNG CERAMIC SCULPTURES

Sculptures that have the option to be wall hung or freestanding. This gives the owner options to display according to their space. Each piece is bespoke and hand built as a single sculpture or commissioned as multiple pieces designed to be hung together to form a dramatic focal point to any space. 

 

CERAMIC SCULPTURES FOR INDOOR OR OUTDOOR DISPLAY

Sculptures can be designed to sustain outdoor weather and therefore can be made for indoor or outdoor planting. Succulents can be grown on the clay or planting can be designed to grow around and compliment the bespoke designs.
