Kathryn Zamar is a ceramic artist living in Kent where she works from her studio based in Bromley. Kathryn's work is inspired by landscape, seascape, shoreline and the feminine form. She endeavours to create tactile works, all pieces being unique and designed using strong, simple, flowing lines.
Kathryn specializes in the development of unique glazes and it is the intention that those works that are glazed evoke impressions of the natural world. Kathryn constantly explores the relationship between form and colour and creates glaze mixes in order to enhance texture and meaning. Glazes are applied using multiple layering techniques, these techniques being used in order to attain a sense of depth, fluidity and movement, life and tactility. In certain cases multiple firings are needed to obtain the desired final finish. The inspiration for Kathryn's glazes come from the natural world and involve the application of upto 9 layers of complimentary colour.
Ultimately the choice of finish is dependent upon design and it is chosen to compliment each piece of work to best effect. Some sculptural forms remain unglazed and the natural earthy beauty of the clay in these pieces is allowed to speak for itself. Striations between each coil can clearly be seen, enhancing the finish and meaning of such works.
Kathryn's work has been exhibited in London, the South and the West of England, including exhibitions at the Mall Gallieries London, the London Boat Show 2017 and the Royal Tunbridge Wells International Art Fair.
