The Fenton Arts Trust Early Career residencies, provide the opportunity for an emerging designer/maker based in the UK to spend three weeks at Cove Park working in parallel with artists specialising in visual arts and literature. The participating residents will also benefit from being part of a changing group of national and international artists working in a wide variety of art forms.
Katie Spragg is a ceramic artist whose current work seeks to explore the simple pleasure of being outside in nature; her fascination is not only with nature itself but with our human interaction and relationship to it. She intends to use her residency to experiment further with clay and animation, expanding upon subject matter, developing new techniques and reinvigorating the narrative element of her work.
