Illustrative Ceramics by Katharine Morling

Katharine Morling illustrative ceramics by the London artist almost look like sketches at first glance. Once she has created the ceramic object, Morling embellishes the pieces with ink-like black lines, loosely drawing in details such as hardware, texture or stitching.

Butterfly drawer by Katharine Morling

“My work can be described as 3 dimensional drawings, in the medium of ceramics. Each piece, on the surface, an inanimate object, has been given layers of emotion and embedded with stories, which are open for interpretation in the viewer’s mind. When put together, the pieces combine to make a tableau staging the still lives of everyday objects. The life size pieces and the unexpectedness of the scale create a slightly surreal experience as you walk through this strange environment. I work very instinctively, one piece leads to the next, I try not to pin down what I am doing or even why. I have to trust and believe that I can communicate through this medium. My searching is never complete; each piece is a journey for answers that are only hinted at, with more questions.” – Katharine Morling
