Karin Burt

Artist + Karin Burt

I was born in London and spent the first 15 years of my life living there. I then embarked on a great two year adventure to New Orleans. I'm not sure what my mother was thinking when she agreed to that but it certainly had an effect on my formative years!

I studied at New Orleans Center for Creative Arts (N.O.C.C.A) which is where I first found pottery. Luckily my teacher let me stay after school to practice and I became addicted.

After graduating high school I returned to London and studied ceramics at Camberwell College of Art and Design, part of University of the Arts London. Fast forward to 2009 and I was back in New Orleans and back making pottery. In the last two years I have set up my own studio The London Clayworks where I teach and rent out space to other artists.

I work in porcelain and stoneware clay making mainly functional work. My work has a modern and simple feel, concentrating on clean lines. My quest is to find that perfect form and I'd like to think I get a little closer every day.
