Ceramic show closes at Nelson Squash Club Thursday

Kimberley Hyatt’s work is created with the sgrafitto technique

Kimberley Hyatt is exhibiting ceramic work at the Nelson Squash Club Thursday from 6 to 9 p.m. The show concludes at the end of the month and this is the closing night celebration.

Wall work, platters and mugs will be on exhibit and for sale. Her black and white work is created with a technique called sgrafitto. She layers black underglaze on the raw clay and carves back her designs with a small hook tool to reveal the white porcelain clay body underneath.

As a horse-crazy child and teenager she couldn’t stop drawing the animals. “It’s like coming home to find them again on clay,” she says.

She’s inspired by fabric, flora and fauna and creates playful pastoral work. This influence guides both her wall work and her functional items.

The entrance to the Nelson Squash Club is to the right of the Dominion Cafe at 330 Baker St.
