Figura meets the maker: Kate Schuricht

Figura meets the maker: Kate Schuricht


Don’t miss your last chance to see British ceramic artist Kate Schuricht’s exhibition at the New Ashgate Gallery in Farnham, Surrey, which closes on Saturday 27th February.

Kate works in raku and stoneware producing a range of work including boxes, tapered vessels, jugs and wall vases. The raku firing technique she uses creates a unique crackle finish that works differently over each piece, the shape of which dictates the distinctive design. Her pieces are often shown in groups or small collections, combined with wood, slate or stone.

Having studied Three Dimensional Design at the University of Brighton, specialising in ceramics and visual research, Kate was selected for an international ceramic residency in Japan, where she worked alongside established Japanese, Korean and American artists. On her return, she set up her business at Cockpit Arts, London, where she was based for nearly 10 years.

Now a Professional Member of the Crafts Potters Association, Kate has completed commissions for a number of private and public collections, including British Airways, the British Embassy in St Petersburg, Craftspace and Cowley Manor. Her work is collected worldwide and has featured in several printed publications and films
