Karen Harrison

Karen was born in Cambridge. She now lives in Dorset.  In 1988, she graduated from Harrow College of Art, HND Ceramics.

She was awarded the Winsor & Newton prize of Art and her work selected for Arts Council presentation.

Domestic Stoneware:

A passionate gardener with a background in textiles, these influences are evident in the glaze on glaze technique of decorating with Chinese brushes. Her work is thrown and bisque fired in an electric kiln to 1000°C. The pieces are then dipped in a base glaze and decorated with colour and slip trailers.  They are then fired in a gas kiln to 1280°C. The reducing environment gives the subtle hazy colours obtained.
