Karen Dawn Curtis
Karen is a ceramic artist based in Cardiff. She has produced aesthetic art pieces for many years but has recently rediscovered throwing and become struck by the unique appeal of ceramics as functional art. Inspired by the Brecon Beacons as a place where rugged nature has been lived in but not lost, Karen created her collections to explore the point where beauty and practical purpose meet.
She has always been fascinated by the naked surface of clay. Adding oxides to the clay body creates the exterior colours without having to mask the natural texture of the material. The interior surfaces of the pieces are glazed to ensure that they are food safe. In developing these glazes, Karen has discovered a rich palette of colours which are reminiscent of South Wales itself.
“It is my hope that this work is art which will be touched, used and treasured.”
