Polymer Clay - Mixed Media

The line and gesture of Kate's work draws on a continuing practice and study of the human figure. Drawing, painting, printmaking and sculpting are a major part of Kate’s work life. Her use of fabrics reflect a background in textile design, her major course of study at Rhode Island School of Design: BFA 1978 The intention of the work is to carry a sense of emotion through the posture and expression of the figure evolving in front of her. Built using a process that is movable throughout its construction, a tangible sense of emerging comes naturally to the finished sculpture. Movement is part of their design.
