Katharine Ward, a Yorkshire born artist, considers organic subject matter, such as the fluctuations in forms and structures within natural landscapes and spaces. Ward curiously observes beauty in the overlooked, practicing the habit of Casual Magic, and here, takes inspiration. She explores themes of potential growth, life force and the nostalgia of her rural, folk infused childhood.
These interests present predominantly through whimsical ceramic sculptures but are informed and supported by paintings and drawings. Through this practice, Ward journals her time spent in these natural landscapes, and immerses herself within the process. In this way, her practice is often about a journey and the path she has taken to realise the artwork.
