KAREN HARRISON : makes a range of domestic stoneware pottery including large dishes, bowls, store jars, mugs, jugs, sauce boats, vases and planters. The shapes are traditional with glazes in soft misty colours of cream, peach, blues, purples and greens.
Karen trained at Harrow College of Art from 1986-88 and was awarded the Winsor & Newton prize for art. A passionate gardener with a background in textiles, these influences are evident in the glaze-on-glaze technique of decorating with Chinese brushes. All work is wheel thrown stoneware, fired to 1280C in a gas fired kiln.
Her work is stocked in numerous shops and galleries and she exhibits widely.
Karen lives and works in Gillingham, Dorset and is a member of the Dorset Pottery Group and the North Dorset Group of artists.
