Kate Learmouth
Mixed media and ceramics

Festival: 2019

Based in Derbyshire, I am a mixed media artist working with paper, gesso, textiles and found natural materials and, more recently, ceramics (stoneware and porcelain).

Exploring the ideas of beauty in decay and traces of what was once there, I use a limited, muted palette, developing texture and detail by adding and layering materials and techniques to distress the finish.

I am influenced and inspired by weathered and decaying materials – rusting and patinated metals, peeling paint, and aging wood – along with the rural landscapes around me and the mark humans and animals have made on it.
