Elaine King Ceramics

Tue, August 1, 2023 - Thu, August 31, 2023

Working from her Dorset studio, Elaine King is recognised as an established British maker and her ceramic artwork is keenly collected in the UK and overseas. Elaine graduated from Camberwell School of Art, London in the mid 1970s, with a degree in Ceramics. After taking time out to raise her family and following a successful career in teaching art and ceramics, Elaine started to build up a wide selection of nature-based work, producing contemporary, hand-built ceramics.

Her work, usually functional, is built in white stoneware clay and hand-painted with a palette of slips, oxides and underglaze colours and using a mixture of wax and paper-resist techniques.

More recently, while still teaching adult workshops, she has developed work which derives from particular influences and impressions of trees, sourced in texture and colour. Elaine has created a body of work, through altered slabs of clay, individually decorating each piece with images developed from observations made gardens, meadows, forests, woodland and coastlines and National Trust properties.
