Karen Turner's Profile

About

I am Karen Turner, A Designer/Maker based in Overstone, a small village in Northamptonshire, UK . I completed a design crafts degree in July 2010 and have shown my work at New Designers in London and Mint Gallery, London. I now have work in various shops and galleries around the country.
I am mum to my 3 beautiful children and wife to my lovely hubby, Martin, who is also my technical wiz, kiln maintainence man etc!


I originally trained as a nurse many years ago but have always longed to turn my passion for art into something more than just a hobby. My main medium of choice is clay but I also enjoy experimenting with all manner of different materials. I still get very excited every time I open up my kiln as no two things ever turn out exactly the same which is what makes handmade so wonderful and unique!…

I am a collector of vintage bits and bobs and love visiting antique shops and car boot sales looking for interesting objects to use as a starting point in some of my work. Vintage Lace, keys, bottles, letters, stamps and such...they all tell a story.
All of my pieces are created entirely by hand and are my own designs, and therefore are one of a kind. When you purchase my work, you are supporting an independent, working artist and I am Very Grateful! I use various processes in creating my ceramic pieces, such as slip casting, press moulding and hand forming.
