Karen graduated from Glasgow School of Art with a First Class Honours then completed a Post Graduate in Ceramics in 1990. Since then she has worked on numerous art education projects and now makes ceramics in
her workshop in Renfrewshire.
'I make functional and decorative earthenware ceramics for the home. Coloured slip decoration, printed decals and glaze are applied in layers to create a playful, collage like quality. Each piece is fired up to three times to 1080 degrees centigrade in an electric kiln.'
