Katie Spragg is a ceramic artist and educator, combining clay with a range of processes including animation and installation to create work that aims to rouse curiosity. Two dual elements form her practice; the creation of sculptural and film work, currently exploring our relationship with nature and the ways that humans and plants co-exist and; engaging others in the pleasures and benefits of making in clay through formal teaching, public workshops and tailored sessions.
Katie’s catalogue of work includes a piece in the V&A Museum collection and commissions for the British Ceramics Biennale and Sotheby’s. Her work has been exhibited by the Craft Council in London and Miami, included in the British Council’s touring Film Festival and presented at solo shows at Blackwell, Arts and Crafts House and the Garden Museum.
Katie tutors at the Royal College of Art, is a founding member of Collective Matter; an outreach group who pioneer collaborative practice through clay, and has developed a Clay for Dementia programme with the Garden Museum. Her project at the museum with Lambeth Young Carers has been awarded Arts Council funding.
“Katie is an ambitious artist whose work offers an immersive experience for the viewer, reminding us both of nature’s fragility and its resilience.” Alun Graves senior curator, V&A.
