Karen  Atherley

Karen Atherley is a ceramicist based in the UK. She has created her own personal style with a career spanning 30 years. Her work portrays curvy figures influenced by Greek antiquity and the colours of the impressionists.

'I have been working with clay since specialising in ceramics at Camberwell College of Art and Crafts. I was captured by the immediate responsiveness of clay and its fleshy quality as it pushed back on my hands. There I was exposed to and mentored by prominent potters such as Colin Pearson and Janice Tchalenko.'

In 1983, Karen established a studio with Philip Vian at Sumner Road Workshops in South London. This studio soon grew to become a collective of makers. Karen currently works from her home studio based in Lincolnshire.
