About Katie Rose Johnston
Working from her garden studio in South Glasgow, Katie Rose Johnston crafts small batch, sculptural ceramics that are influenced by Archaeology, the Natural Sciences and the raw, windswept landscape of her birthplace Shetland. Mudlarking for ancient artefacts and foraging starts as material research in her practice, as well as experimentation with wild glaze materials and clays collected from nature.
