This month in The Atrium, we present:
Karen Lowes. Karen’s work explores the colours and depths of the mysterious, the hidden and the unseen. She works with both fashion design and applied arts in mind using her digitally printed fabric to transform old and new ceramics into decorative wall pieces.
Her drawings are inspired mainly by landscape as she finds herself drawn to open spaces where endless ambiguous possibilities of mark making, photography and imagination can be achieved. These drawings are embedded inside the plates and heighten the curiosity of the objects that were once overlooked.
The plates are given a new life and a new purpose. They are no longer plates but are objects to be appreciated, examined and explored in a way, which they may never had encountered.
Judith Roberts. Judith's current work combines traditional hand building techniques with more experimental ways of working with clay. Judith is intrigued by the versatility of porcelain paperclay; how it 'sticks' to itself dry or wet with the simple use of slip as a glue. Her platters and vessels are a combination of slabbed and press moulded clay with piped, impressed and transfer decorations giving a contemporary twist to work inspired by historical artifacts and architecture.
