Ceramic Sculptures by artist Kathy Venter

Kathy Venter’s life-size, figurative ceramic sculpture has received widespread international acclaim.
Venter has developed a unique hand-building method to sculpt her ceramics without the use of moulds or armatures.
Her work has been published in books and art magazines on ceramics and sculpture in the U.K., the U.S.A., Canada and South Africa. She exhibits in leading contemporary fine art galleries in San Francisco, Sonoma, Palm Desert, Seattle, Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver.


Life sized sculptures by Kathy Venter

Kathy Venter builds her life size ceramic sculptures by hand using the extended pinch method - similar to large vessel building.
No molds are used as the hollow, completed wet clay sculptures are 13% larger than life size to shrink to the desired scale after firing.

An exhibition of 36 of her sculptures will be shown at the Gardiner Museum, Toronto from 30th May 2013 to 15th September 2013.

So much needs to be said about what Jillian Venters (tumblr: gothiccharmschool | site) to the world that it is impossible to cover it all efficiently in a single sentence.

The only plausible way to convey the melodious and wicked message is to simply put it in her own words: Gothic Charm School.

Wicked gothmother to so many, she builds a daily example of what we all hope to be. A living, soon to be vampiric witch queen, ruling over a kingdom of bats and cats.

Happy birthday, beloved Jillian Venters. Long may your terrifying reign last.
