This webinar will be broadcast on Thursday 6th August at 6pm as part of Craft NI’s August Craft Month.

New to August Craft Month in 2020 is Craft in Conversation with renowned arts broadcast journalist and BBC Radio Ulster Culture Café presenter, Marie-Louise Muir.  Marie-Louise will be speaking each week to a prestigious guest from the craft world.

This week Marie-Louise will sit down with celebrated ceramic artist, Kate Malone MBE.  Kate is one of the UK’s leading ceramic artists with an illustrious career spanning over thirty years. She has developed an unmistakable and highly regarded style, evidenced by her unique, hand-made pots and intricately ornamented sculptures.

Observations of nature, particularly its fruits, nuts and berries are the overriding influence in Kate’s work. The sophistication of her glazes has led to some interesting collaborations with prominent architects and designers, working on inspiring public art projects in hospitals, schools, parks and libraries.

Kate was a judge on the BBC’s Great Pottery Throw Down and recently she has become the ceramic ambassador for the charity, OnSide Youthzones.

The interview will give you fantastic insight into Kate’s approach to her stand-out work, her craft journey and what inspires her. There will also be a Q&A and an opportunity to ask Kate Malone questions on her career and the craft sector.

The Craft in Conversation series is part of a full programme of events coordinated by Craft NI. For more information and to explore more events and activities, visit
