Katie Spragg creates work that aims to arouse curiosity. Whether through sharing a story or conjuring a collective memory, her practice highlights the forgotten sources of joy and amusement that surround us. Her latest body of work combines ceramic objects, installation, and moving image to create momentary experiences that capture the wonder of being outside in nature.
Katie Spragg graduated from Brighton University with a BA in 3D Materials Practice in 2010, followed by an MA in Ceramics & Glass at the Royal College of Art in 2016. Spragg has exhibited, undertaken residencies and has work held in collections both in the UK and internationally. Recent achievements include; the acquisition of her piece ‘Hedgerow’ by the Victoria and Albert Museum, selected for a ‘Spotlight’ space at the Collect 2017 in the Saatchi Gallery, commissioned to run a project for the Tate Exchange programme as a member of Collective Matter and the upcoming display of her work in the Garden Museum, London.
