About Karen Edwards

WPA

Based in North Somerset, I have been a fulltime potter since 2005. Making work for gardens combines my interests in plants, landscape and clay. I aim to make pieces that will harmonise with outdoor surroundings, providing a visual focus throughout the year.

I enjoy the rhythm of handbuilding, using various techniques to produce my unique designs. Sizes range from tiny pebbles (8cm long) to sculptural forms (60cm or higher). Surfaces are burnished, impressed, carved, scraped or inlaid to give distinctive texture combinations. Colour is generally added with slips and oxide washes, with occasional use of glazes. My work is fired to 1280oC in an electric kiln, and is frostproof.

A sculpture, planter or wall plaque can be a special way of commemorating a significant occasion and I am happy to discuss commission or personalisation ideas. Visitors are welcome by appointment to my studio.

I regularly participate in sculpture exhibitions at venues such as RHS Garden Rosemoor, University of Bristol Botanic Garden and Showborough House. I also take part in open studio events, various craft shows and festivals such as Art in Clay, Hatfield House – please see my website for more information.
