Karen Bunting

Category Ceramicist

Region London

Karen Bunting is drawn to that particular quality of stillness and sobriety that pots can have, and aims to make pieces that are quiet and contemplative, revealing their qualities to the viewer over time and through use and handling.

She makes functional ceramics in reduced stoneware. Each piece is initially thrown then individually worked and decorated. The reduction firing produces muted colours, and the resulting pot is unique but shares a family resemblance with its fellows.
