Skilled Ceramicist Katharine Morling Lifts Her Paper Drawings From The Page


Katharine Morling‘s work is so good, it’s confusing. That is, it takes a moment for the brain to put together exactly what’s going on — at least my brain anyway. She describes what she does as three dimensional drawings in ceramic, and that’s bang on the money; life-sized pencil drawings that come to life, lifted from the page with consummate skill in Morling’s Deptford studio. So how does the magic happen?


The nature of her subjects make their ceramic construction tricky, and Morling researches the shapes carefully, planning the internal structure and temporary external supports needed. From there on in it’s clay, a couple of simple tools, and pure talent.


The work is intricate and time-consuming — the studio has up to three assistants working alongside Morling herself — but the results of their efforts are certainly worth the trouble.
