About the Artist
Kat Evans’ asymmetrical sculptures speak of the processes that made them: pinching, coiling and paddling. Hours of careful and deliberate burnishing create a perfectly smooth canvas for a dramatic, but intentional, smoke firing.
Kat collects and receives combustible materials including wood shavings, seed heads, coffee grounds and horse hair. The white hot sculptures are removed from the raku kiln and immediately brought into contact with this detritus. At this point, control gives way to chance. Time stops. The still porous surfaces record the smoke patterns.
Work which survives the thermal shock is cleaned and polished. The resulting sculptures encourage interaction: touching the unglazed surface and viewing the angular shapes from different perspectives.
Kat lives in Manchester and works in Stoke-on-Trent, UK.
