'Fleshpots', Rubenesque female sculpture in ceramic, make up Karen's primary body of work. She employs a range of hand building techniques using several types of clay and endeavours to impart warmth and humor in her work. The figure is married with driftwood creating the finished piece. Life is inspirational. There is always something new, an idea, a technique, to inform.
Traditionally, many ceramics are finished with glaze. Fleshpots are finished with wax and a buff. However, a new range of work is currently being developed using the figure as inspiration. More focus is directed at textures and glazes. The work will be sculptural, decorative AND functional.
