Hessenberg K 01. Floral Sun Hat

Karin has been a member of Studiopottery.co.uk for many years and we congratulate her on this great result!

Background information:

Karin says “I studied ceramics at Camberwell School of Art under Colin Pearson, Janice Tchalenko and Ian Godfrey. My first studio was at the Barbican Arts Group in London, where I made thrown porcelain pots, some glazed and others burnished and sawdust fired. Inspired by travel in Peru and India, in 1981 I changed direction and started making large hand-built garden ornaments and planters. This gradually led me to looking at sculpture. I am now principally making sculpture, both portraits from life and small figures and busts of historical characters.”

Karin is a Fellow of the Craft Potters Association and on the Craft council Index of Selected makers. For more information and to contact Karin follow this link
