Stars on Starting Out aims to encourage and support emerging and progressing artists, makers, creative businesses and anyone with an interest in visual arts, architecture and design.
Four inspirational high-profile guest speakers, including Paul Simmons, designer and co-founder of Timorous Beasties, ceramicist Kate Malone and artists Jessica Voorsanger and Alex Chinneck, will discuss their careers to date and explore successful strategies for starting out in the creative industries.
Join us on Wednesday 12 October for the second Stars on Starting Out talk in the series, delivered by ceramicist Kate Malone.
Kate Malone's incrediable work ranges from egg cups to whole building facades;
I work, with the help of my precious team, in three areas with clay - Decorative Arts, large scale Public projects and, thirdly on Glaze Research. Hand skills are at the core of the way that I work, conveying a sense of pleasure in materials and transmitting symbolic optimism is my objective.
Her work is in numerous public collections, including the Arts Council Collection, Bristol City Museum and Art Gallery, Crafts Council, The Ashmolean Museum, Manchester Art Gallery, Musée national de céramique de Sèvres, Victoria & Albert Museum and Los Angeles County Museum of Art. She has recently made new works inspired by the internationally famous collection at Waddesdon Manor, and judged on the BBC2 series The Great Pottery Throw Down.
In this Stars on Starting Out event, Kate will discuss her career to date, and exploring successful strategies for starting out in the creative industries. Kate will be introduced by Sheffield-based ceramicist Victoria Dawes, who's recently completed the Starter Studio programme here at Yorkshire Artspace.
