Plants, Porcelain, People is a new ceramic commission and exhibition which will open at St Peter Hungate church, Norwich in May as part of the Norfolk and Norwich Festival. This new, collaborative installation has been made by Katie Spragg in response to, and in partnership with, a group of extraordinary young refugees through the Norwich based charity, Norwich International Youth Project.
Katie Spragg is an established ceramicist working in porcelain to create delicately beautiful plant sculptures. She has undertaken a number of commissions and work with communities, notably a major commission for the Garden Museum, Lambeth in 2019. She trained at the Royal College of Art where she herself is now a lecturer on the MA in Ceramics and Glass.
My involvement in this project will provide an opportunity for a sustained period of research and development, responding to a particular site. Developing ideas for the work in response to Norwich International Youth Project participants will be particularly valuable. A number of projects I was involved in last year were cancelled due to Covid, and this project will give me chance to find new ways of working and responding to participants. Katie Spragg
