About the event

In this talk and workshop, Kim Colebrook will explore her inspiration for the pieces on view at ‘Alchemy’ and show how she embeds narrative within her making, using the Japanese technique of Nerikomi.

As well as sharing her journey into ceramics, she will demonstrate her techniques and you will be able to make a block of porcelain for use at home.

Kim’s work starts with blocks of clay inlaid with coloured clays and oxides that relate to the coal measures, in a loose style of Nerikomi. She then uses various techniques to expose the layers, by rolling, moulding, burning and carving into (Kurinuki). Often the layers are hidden within her forms but become visible with light.

Join the artist to put her techniques to practice and to learn more about the geology, people and history of South Wales through craft.

About the artist:

Kim Colebrook is a ceramic artist based in Abergavenny, South Wales. Much of her work is inspired by a passion for telling the stories of this area. She aims to incorporate texture and narrative in her ceramics, often creating very simple forms that will carry the intended message. Her work is hand built or cast, integrating textures, colours and oxides.
