Katie Lowe is a contemporary maker in the field of slip casting ceramics.
Katie graduated from NTU in 2015 after completing the Decorative Arts BA (Hons) course which is one of the most established 2D and 3D design and craft-based courses in the UK accredited by the Chartered Society of Designers.
With a focus on simplicity and the beauty within colour, material and form; Katie aims to create a range of artworks combining subtle gradients, miniature vessels and other complimenting materials.
From small decorative pieces to large scale installations she strives to create a strong visual impact through clean lines, bold forms and colour gradients.
The process of colouring slip and creating subtle gradients is what she finds most exciting; enjoying the technical process behind creating each colour and how different experiments can give different and new results.
Katie uses Parian Semi Porcelain Casting Slip 160-1204 to create her slipcast ceramic vessels
Inspired by many aspects of nature: gradients within the sea and sky, textures in marine life and natural composition throughout global landscapes.
Katie is also taking part in the Maker’s Dozen exhibition at the Nottingham Society of Artists Gallery until Sunday 17th September.
We hope to see you soon as September is flying by so quickly and when it’s behind us and October is knocking at our door there won’t be many days left to see this fantastic exhibition with these amazing fifteen designer/makers all at the very start of their creative journeys x
