Kate Rattray BA ( Hons) Creative Arts

Kate is a mosaic artist making bold and dynamic glass and ceramic mosaic works of art.  She works in both 2 and 3 dimensions for indoor and outdoor spaces.  Her work consists of  a wide range of sizes from small pieces of jewellery to large outdoor sculptures.


Inspired by nature and myth, her works are both narrative and decorative.  She is fascinated with the patterns, movement and energy in the natural world such as flocks and murmurations, storms and eclipses, and dramatic coloured skies. These are recurring themes in her work, sometimes leading to apocalyptic visions.                                                                             

Over the last few years Kate has started to gild glass and acrylic with metal leaf to use in her work.  She is currently experimenting with  ways to control the amount and colour of tarnishing in the metal.

 

She has exhibited extensively in UK and overseas. Her mosaics can be found in private and public collections worldwide.

Kate is a professional member of the Somerset Guild of Craftsmen and the British Association for Modern Mosaic.  In 2006 she was awarded professional membership of the Somerset Guild of Craftsmen and in 2014 was awarded the Craft and Design Selected Maker Silver Award in the Specialist Media category.
