Karen Bunting - New Work

10th of March - 2nd of April

I am drawn to that particular quality of stillness and sobriety that pots can have and aim to make pieces that are quiet and contemplative, revealing their qualities to the viewer over time and through use and handling.

I make functional ceramics in reduced stoneware. Each piece is initially thrown then individually worked and decorated. Stripes, spots and cross-hatching help map out the surface and reveal aspects of the form. The reduction firing produces muted colours, which are often marked out with darker lines of patterning. The resulting pot is uniquebut shares a family resemblance with its fellows.
