KATHERINE STAPLES CERAMICS
Katherine Staples makes free standing, wall mounted, indoor and outdoor ceramic sculptures for commissions and exhibition.
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
Wall hung sculptures. 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 and created to sustain outdoor weather creating a bespoke focal point in your garden.

I'm delighted to be exhibiting at Oxford Ceramics Fair October 24th-25th 2020 at St Edward's School Sports Hall. Busy making and getting ready for this. Lots of new work will be on show.
Decorex 2020 is a virtual show this year on November 17th-19th. I'll have lots of new wall pieces to view online.
Classes are back up and running from my studio at last!! We've had lots of fun with clay, made pinch pots, slab built mugs, hand built bowls and dishes, press moulded, thrown on the wheel and we're about to glaze all the wonderful creations that students have produced. November classes are almost full, there's still space on Saturday taster sessions, so if you're interested in coming along for a play with clay, please get in touch.
Thank you for your interest. For any inquiries, commission requests or information about joining a class or tuition please contact Katherine Staples.
