Ceramicist Katy West is interested in the common ground shared between craft and design and has worked closely with manufacturing since graduating from the Royal College of Art in 2007. She has developed work with Barrhead, Glasgow; Topaz China, Stoke-on-Trent; Stormglass, Caithness; and Wentworth’s Pewter, Sheffield. Concurrent to her Glasgow-based studio work, West explores concerns beyond her own practice through curatorial projects. Recent exhibitions include Our Objects (for The Mackintosh Museum, Glasgow School of Art), Modern Languages (for the National Craft Gallery, Ireland) and Transformers (for The National Centre
for Craft and Design, England).
