hands of artist karen lovenguth


Vessels are the foundations of my ceramic work being unique pieces that are hand built using coils and slabs. I work slowly and the form appears in tandem with my mood, memories, hands, humidity and my current desired aesthetic .

The shape is always a surprise as I do not work within the constraints of a drawing plan or function so the realm of form is infinite. Surface, color and texture make it even more challenging as does the unforgiving atmosphere of kiln firing.
