About Kate Lyons-Miller

WPA

Ceramics fulfills my interest in three dimensional design. The qualities of clay, the age of it, the heft and physicality; the connections between clay, and the geology of the landscape all fascinate me. I like to use clays and minerals from my region, foraging on Dartmoor, and in estuaries and foreshores for clay and stone, and also in adding other materials to my work.

I love the vessel, the universality of the form intrigues me, especially the liminal area between functionality and not. My current work is dynamic; I’m trying to let the character of the clay be a major part of the piece, not to interfere with it too much, yet to create a form which speaks to people.


Although I prefer to work at a fairly large scale, my vessels can also be viewed as close as you like, the surfaces I create with ceramics are as important as the form.
I am aiming for authenticity, letting the materials speak for themselves.
Work is currently on exhibition at Plymouth college of Art, Best in Summer Show 2016, Stone Lane Gardens Summer Sculpture Show, Chagford, Devon, and at the Gaia Spa, Boringdon Hall, Plympton.

My work has been shown at TENT, The London Design Festival 2016, the Thelma Hulbert Gallery, Honiton, and currently at the Leach Gallery, St Ives
