Karen Risby is showing with us for the first time and I am so pleased, I have admired her work for a long time and think it will really appeal to the Baxters customers. Her beautiful blue and white colour palette is very fresh and her illustrations just charming.

Artist Bio: Karen Risby
Karen Risby creates contemporary wall hangings, tiles and porcelain accessories. Her work is an extension of her love of drawing, exploring pattern and line using both brushwork and sgraffito, a process that involves scratching back into the painted surface. She takes inspiration from nature, myth and story-telling; birds are a prominent feature of her work often interwoven with landscapes and decorative motifs.
All of Karen’s work is handmade and hand painted with ceramic stains, underglaze and oxides. After the bisque firing the work is glazed with a lead-free transparent glaze and fired to stoneware. Some work then has gold lustre applied and undergoes a third and final firing.
Originally from London, Karen graduated from Camberwell College of Art in 1994 then lived and worked in South London for many years before moving to Suffolk to set up her new ceramic studio in 2010.
