Kathryne Koop, Winnipeg, MB: Ceramics
Venue Section: Mezzanine Level/2nd Floor
Clay captivated my interest over 35 years ago. The act of taking a soft material and transforming it into something permanent that is usable and sculptural continues to fuel my passion. I have explored endless approaches to functional objects, focusing on forms that are both elegant and gestural, combined with a hint of eccentricity. With great attention to detail, each piece is wheel thrown using porcelain clay, glazed with multiple layers of colour, and reduction fired.
