Contemporary artist Katie Spragg combines clay with a range of processes including animation, illustration and installation to create work that aims to arouse curiosity. Whether through sharing a story or conjuring a collective memory, her practice highlights the forgotten sources of joy and amusement that surround us. Her latest body of work which form part of the show remind us of the wonder of being outside in nature.
Katie graduated from MA Ceramics & Glass at the Royal College of Art in 2016. Both prior to this and since, she has exhibited, held residencies and taught ceramics at institutions both nationally and internationally. Recent achievements include; the acquisition of her piece Hedgerow by the Victoria and Albert Museum, shortlisted for the British Ceramics Biennale AWARD show, selected for a ‘Spotlight’ space at Collect 2017 with Flow Gallery, Highly commended in the Young Masters Emerging Woman Art Prize.
Katie Spragg’s animation works will also be on display at Abbot Hall Art Gallery.
