My path as a contemporary visual artist emerged from a career in the sciences. Passion for the scientific processes and curiosity of mechanisms bridged perspective in developing my artwork. The heart of my work integrates a visual articulation incorporating scientific research and literature with a systematic approach to ceramics. Each piece reveals a unique observation of an ecosystem, natural event, or of mathematical origin.
My sculptural wall installations include a series of handcrafted, individual ceramic pieces installed directly onto the current environment. Each installation is unique and representative of the design collaboration and environmental space in which it encompasses. The site specific design layout allows for a professional ceramic installation in all environments, including offices, restaurants, galleries, and private residences.
Please feel free to contact me for a consultation in regards to your next design project. -Katherine
