Karen Risby creates contemporary ceramic sculpture, wall hangings and porcelain accessories. Karen’s work is an extension of her love of drawing, exploring pattern and line using both brushwork and sgraffito, a process that involves scratching back into the painted surface. She takes inspiration from nature, myth and story telling; birds, are a prominent feature of her work interweaved with landscapes, people and places. She uses porcelain slip, stains and oxides and fires her work to stoneware. 
Originally from London, Karen graduated from Camberwell College of Art in 1994 then lived and worked in South London for many years before moving to Suffolk to set up her new ceramic studio in 2010.
