Title:  Mugs
 
Description:
Ceramic
Artist: KarenAtherley 
Profile: 'My pots are vividly coloured and decorated with flowing mainly female figurative nudes and faces wrapped around a diverse range of vases, bowls, mugs and plates. The unique figurative style portrays curvy fleshy figures influenced by Greek antiquity and the colours of the impressionists. I use brightly coloured slips painted onto white earthenware and glazed with a transparent glaze to give a lustrous finish, with the addition of decals to give the work an old fashion feel. Originally a hand builder and a slip caster I am now working with thrown shapes. My aim is to produce a decorative object that has a practical use as well as eye catching and good to look at' karen Atherley.

Description:
Ceramic with Agated Porcelain Rub
Artist: JackDurling 
Profile:

Jack Durling is a Brighton-based sculptural ceramicist who creates artwork that is emotively driven by his passion for conservation and love of wildlife. Creating both individual and grouped pieces. In celebration of the animals depicted Jack uses decorative embellishments, such as lusters and porcelain details upon ceramic forms to create a visual language that subtly highlights environmental and conservation messages.

His work is hand coiled, and hollow formed using stoneware clay bodies and porcelain. Informing his work through loose sketches and paintings that is realised in clay.

Having spent a lot of time in Dungeness as a child, known for its very wild scenery and textures, Jack developed his interest in wildlife. Textural contrasts have evolved as a recognisable feature in Jack’s work. His work is commended for his attention to detail and capturing unique characters and stories within each piece

Notably, Jack was a shortlisted artist for the David Shepherd Wildlife Artist of the Year Award 2022, for his Penguin Colony. A collective piece consisting of 100 handmade penguins. He has also been commissioned by Blind Veterans UK to create sensory murals and a prestigious public art sculpture in Mote Park Maidstone, in conjunction with its Council.
