Kate Anderson 

My work fuses elements from a background in sculpture and painting using traditional and some experimental techniques to interpret my ideas. Materials include stone, hand painted ceramics, vitreous glass and smalti in combinations which create one-off wall panels, screens and 3-dimensional pieces. I am happy to discuss exhibition work and commissions.

The medium of mosaic allows me to interpret themes beyond the purely decorative. I see the contradiction in mosaic – that of its being solid, fixed, and yet containing such an urge to movement in design as sympathetic to the language of symbols which I explore. Symbols survive through cultural changes, but the movement of time adds layers to their meaning. I aim to produce work that stimulates the imagination and is thought provoking. Work for exhibition takes me from the illustrative to the semi-abstract. Ideas are constantly excavated and reassembled.
