Karen Carlyon

Karen began to express her creative ideas by taking watercolour classes, later studying ceramics. She spent several years with Paula Downing, hand-building large sculptural pieces, using various clay bodies.

In 2017, Karen began working as Hugh West’s apprentice and created her own studio.

Her Work:

Karen, now, works exclusively in porcelain; she mixes her own glazes and fires in a gas kiln. Her inspiration comes from the coastline and the long spells watching the movement and colours on the sea. Her main production is tableware, but she also makes individual one-off pieces and takes commissions.

Karen supplies galleries mainly in the South West.
