Contemporary Ceramic Sculpture & Design

“I wake every day filled with curiosity to work with the endless possibilities of the language of clay and chemicals. It’s often a long process but there is no greater joy than discovering new surprising forms, glazes and surfaces in the wonderful and chaotic tactile problem-solving process of these materials.

Whether my artworks lean towards the minimalist, decorative or descriptive ends of the creative spectrum all of my forms are created with a deep knowledge of the ceramic material, it’s interactions, process and time frames and also the audiences’ tactile experience.”

K Collins

With my hands in the clay I think about the tactile experience of my body in the landscape. I use this sensual material to invite an audience to feel the landscape in motion.
