Katharine Morling is an award-winning English artist who since 2003 has been creating original life-size ceramic sculptures that look like two-dimensional sketches, straight out of a sheet of paper.

Exclusively in black and white and full of eccentric graphic details, his works, which reproduce domestic objects such as tables, chairs, stairs, cabinets and various objects, play with the viewer’s preconceptions about material and functionality, bringing to animated scenes with an unusual appearance dynamic.

My work can be described as a three dimensional drawing. Each piece, on the surface, an inanimate object, has been given layers of emotion and embedded with stories, which are open to interpretation. The works I create are narrative pieces in my evolving story, one piece leads to another and I work very instinctively. My work represents my inner search, shown outwardly in domestic and disturbing scenes. I have to trust and believe that I can communicate through this medium. […] My work is the physical manifestation of my inner search shown outwardly in domestic and disturbing scenes.
