Karen Dance works out of her Ladysmith pottery studio, Tilted Kilnworks. Her one-of-a-kind vessels are hand-formed using a variety of methods, such as pinch, coil and slab work. She also creates her own tools and texturizing mats in order to customize her characters. Thoughtful applications of different glazes and stains are used to render depth and create textures that invite touch and endeavour to captivate the viewer. Each piece is given, through its creation, a personality that aims to elicit an emotional response and evoke humour.
