Katie Spragg is a BA (first class honours) graduate of 3D Materials Practice at Brighton University and has a MA in Ceramics & Glass from the Royal College of Art. Spragg combines clay with a range of processes including animation, illustration and installation to create work that aims to arouse curiosity. Whether through sharing a story or conjuring a collective memory, her practice highlights the forgotten sources of joy and amusement that surround us.
Kathryn’s Walk is inspired by “the grasses on a walk I was taken on in Colarado, USA by a woman named Kathryn – it was one of her favourite places to walk and when she heard about my work modelling grasses in porcelain, she invited me to join her the next morning.”
Katie Spragg has exhibited, held residencies and taught ceramics at institutions both nationally and internationally – including South Korea, Denmark and Germany. Recent achievements include: the acquisition of Hedgerow by the Victoria and Albert Museum, shortlisted for the British Ceramics Biennale AWARD show, a solo show at Blackwell, the Arts and Crafts House in 2018, and the exhibiting of two digital works alongside Claude Monet's masterpieces in Monet’s Haystacks: Snow Effect at Abbot Hall Gallery, Kendal. Spragg's animations are featured in the British Crafts Council’s touring film festival Real to Reel, she has been commissioned to run a project for the TATE Exchange programme as a member of Collective Matter, and the artist has twice been selected for the Charlotte Fraser Award.
