Highley Crafted

Find out more about Highley Crafted…

Highley Crafted is the creation of Kathryn Borg, a Derbyshire based ceramic artist. Kathryn tells us about her work:

“My work is concentrated on functional forms, inspired by the natural world and its colours.  I want my pieces to be functional, but also aesthetically pleasing. I use a variety of handbuilding techniques including pinching, coiling and moulding and use glazes and different coloured clays to compliment these forms.

I really enjoy the time spent in my workshop, making my pieces; I find it relaxing, therapeutic, creative and rewarding. I love the medium of clay, its many techniques and how it can be transformed into many different forms, be that either functional or sculptural.

I really love what I do, there are still so many techniques to discover and I’m constantly learning and developing my work.”
