Artist Statement

Karen Downing makes porcelain pots for everyday use: pots to be  filled up, drunk out of, eaten from. The essence of her work is in its potential for use.The intention is that these pots not only fulfill their functions but also transform what are often unconsidered moments into cherished ones, make the ordinary tasks special and bring beauty and pleasure to the everyday, even to the washing up.

Karen uses Royal Porcelain to create her pieces
