Kate Buckley

Kate left a rewarding career as a primary school teacher to embrace a contemporary craft degree which then led to her becoming an artist in her own right.

Graduating in 2019, her work has been exhibited in galleries throughout Yorkshire, Scunthorpe, Newcastle, London and Urbino, Italy.

Kate is an Art& RAW Talent 2020/21 Award Winner and Sunny Bank Mills Gallery 2020 'Ones to Watch' Artist.

She is a member of the British Origami Society, Northern Potters Association, Craft Potters Association and currently Artist in Residence at York College.  

Her recent work comprises of a collection of sculptural porcelain pieces – light, shadow and the art of the fold.

Through her sculptural porcelain Kate strives to express the delicacy of paper and how geometry, repetition and folding capture the interplay of shadow and light, and embrace the space between them.

The work is mostly slip-cast and press-moulded folded linen.
