Kathryn Holt-Christmas Exhibition

Kathryn Holt-Christmas Exhibition

This exhibition combines my porcelain pieces with new explorations in collage.
The process I use to create the stained porcelain tiles and birds is essentially collage, I collect textured fragments to make small collages onto card or rubber and use these to impress into porcelain sheets.
After firing the pieces they are washed with colour, re fired and then sanded back to reveal the texture and pattern.
The new collaged work was inspired when I inherited the sketch books of my grandmother’s sister, Christina Bradshaw. My Grandmother died before I was born so Christina became a surrogate grandma to me. Like her mother before her (my great Grandma, Emma) Christina was a great doer maker, artist and user upper of bits and pieces.
I have incorporated and altered pages from her sketch books with additions of found and created fragments to bring new life to her work. Exhibition runs till January 6th 2014.
