Artist’s  Statement

Kathryn Zamar is a ceramic artist living in Kent. Kathryn’s work is inspired by landscape, seascape, shoreline and the feminine form, and she endeavours to create tactile works, all pieces being unique and designed using strong, simple, flowing lines.

Kathryn specializes in the development of unique glazes and it is the intention that those works that are glazed evoke impressions of the natural world. Kathryn is constantly exploring the relationship between form and colour and creates her unique glaze mixes in order to bring life and meaning to her work. Glazes are applied using multiple layering techniques, these techniques being used to attain a sense of depth, fluidity, movement and tactility. In certain cases multiple firings are needed to obtain the required result. The inspiration for Kathryn’s glazes comes from landscape and seascape and involve the application of up to 9 layers of complimentary colour. 

Ultimately the choice of finish is dependent upon the design and it is chosen to compliment each piece of work to best effect.

Some sculptural forms remain purposefully unglazed, this being dictated by their design, and for these pieces of work the natural, earthy beauty of the clay is allowed to speak for itself. Striations between each coil can clearly be seen which enhance the finish and meaning.

Kathryn’s work has been exhibited in London, the South and the West of England, including exhibitions at the Mall Galleries London, for the Society of Women Artist’s Open Exhibition and The Royal Society of Marine Artists Exhibition, the Royal Tunbridge Wells International Art Fair, the London Boat Show and the London Art Biennale 2017: Prize for Sculpture.
