About the Artist

Katherine Glenday’s vessels defy stereotypical classification. They embody form and function, sacred and profane. They are symbols and metaphors while maintaining their implicit function as containers of air, of liquid, of sound and of silence. The clay that forms the translucent and transparent skin between the material and the immaterial. The primordial clay and the human potential to form, transform and communicate.

Katherine’s fine technical skill and ability to subtly manipulate and collaborate with her medium constantly leads her to explore the metaphysical implications of each individual form and the series it belongs to.

When encountering her work for the first time what strikes one is a sense of stillness, refinement and grace. The meditative pieces each with their own unique resonating sound and purity of form evoke a sense of clarity, simplicity and inner peace.

Katherine’s work however defies being purely essentialist, platonic and rarified, as there are parallel series that speak of fallibility, insecurity, confusion and suffering.

These forms spring out of spontaneity and chance, where the material itself suggests and inspires the direction the transmutation will take. To spill, to splash, to collapse are natural movements and sentiments.

Katherine’s desire to extend this personal dialogue even further and allow it to develop into a collaborative and collective experience is to regain the true spirit of art.
