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.
