Katharine Morling is a ceramists based in the UK who has worked all over the world.  She creates and enchanting variety of work, with a bulk of her specialty spent in the theme of life sized, yet sketch-esque, non realistic forms.  All of said pieces look like they could have emerged from her very sketchbook, with each piece portraying a trademark hard dark outline and blank white glaze on the interior.   The pieces create an atmosphere that makes the audience think, not only in the intrigue of the pieces, but the oddity of seeing life size everyday still life objects, but in a form that doesn’t feel as if it belongs.  All the pieces are sculpted, majorly in slab and hand built techniques, out of porcelain, with black stain for the line drawing.
