Kat Evans is an artist working with clay and smoke.
She works from in a shared studio in Manchester.
Pinching and coiling, Kat slowly builds forms with enticing curves and defined edges.
Shaping and burnishing, she creates smooth, reflective surfaces.
These surfaces absorb smoke in a failure-rich firing process.
The work that survives is precious. Viewers pick up a form, hold it, keep it.
These objects appear to be found. But they have been made, alongside others, in a warm place.
