Women in British History

This work in progress exhibition, uses traditional commemorative ware to look at just a small selection of amazing women who left their mark throughout British history. Their contribution to society is immense but often over shadowed. These trailblazers and visionaries on display are just a thumb nail of the women who helped make a change to society. Commemorative ware has been used to document events from political satire to holiday souvenirs and was used as a social indicator of the times. This collection has been part of an on going project and has been selected by friends, family and through social media.Katch Skinner is a tutor in ceramics and maker of things. She uses hand built ceramics and speciality design plaster moulds for slip casting to form plates and manipulated moulds. Each earthenware piece is unique,  using hand painted underglazes, slips for mono printing, engobes, and lusters. She also produces silkscreened and digital decals, this means the work can take in excess of four kiln firings.
