Kim Bagley


I make works from clay. Clay is earth; clay can be a skin. The pleasure and possibility of manipulating this tactile material drives me. I fire clay things, group them, (re)arrange them and break them up to think through ideas, objects, spaces and places. My ceramic objects are often musings of place and identities, hand-formed from clay and made permanent with fire.

I am from KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa.

I work from the studios at 318 Ceramics, Farnham Pottery in the UK.

Crafts of Child’s Play

I’m pleased to announce my inclusion in this exhibition at the New Ashgate Gallery in Farnham.

From the Gallery website: ‘This exhibition will showcase new work that is inspired by play, children stories, childhood memories and/or has an idiosyncratic childlike quality. It is often also created with children in mind. Join us to celebrate the art of playfulness and find many lovely gift ideas for younger "collectors" of art.’

The exhibition is curated by Loucia Manopolou.

11 June - 23 July.
