KAY CASTELLE

“The confluence of my studies in painting and architecture informs my work in clay. I am intrigued by handbuilding, as it demands an understanding of the precise engineering of forms. At the same time, I value the random imprecision created by the magical forces in the glazing and firing processes. My hand-built ceramics are made of stoneware and porcelain, enhanced with slips, oxides and glazes and fired in electric, soda and gas reduction kilns.”

Kay received a BA in Linguistics and Art from Brown University and did graduate work in Environmental Design at Pratt Institute. She has participated in juried shows at the Berkshire Crafts Fair (2012, 2013, 2014, 2015) and the Spencertown Academy Regional Art Show (2014).
