Kara Wood is a ceramic artist, based in Newcastle, Australia. Trained at Newcastle Art School in both ceramics and fine art, Kara has been honing her skills for 25 years, often incorporating her fine art skills into the narrative of her pieces using the surface of the clay as a canvas. Wood's work has been shown domestically and internationally in both group shows and curated invitational exhibitions.
Kara Wood’s work is an exploration of the complex and multi dimensional palimpsest of life. Using both throwing and hand building techniques Kara manipulates forms that are then decorated with text, illustrations and texture to create a strong narrative around these interactions.
