CERAMIC SCULPTURES

To commission a piece of sculpture or a wall piece please contact me at katherinestaples@outlook.com
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.

We want everyone to feel welcome in the gallery, come and see our plinths made from the old sails of Whissendine Windmill.
