Katharina Roth, ceramicist, joins Gallery 55!

By Katharina Roth

Please welcome Katharina Roth, our newest member, to Gallery 55. You saw her work when she was guest artist in December. Her art was so popular, we invited her to join us permanently.

Her work evokes Chinese ceramics but with her own twist. Katharina writes, “In fall of 2016 I spent six weeks in a residency program in Jingdezhen, China’s porcelain capitol for over 2000 years. I loved every minute of my time there – the close interaction with Chinese craft people, the many hours spent in the studio with other artists, and the lessons in some of the techniques that are so unique to Chinese ceramics.”

This immersion changed the way she work. While her previous work mostly used white unglazed porcelain, she now adds many layers to the clay with slips, oxides, glazes, decals, and luster. The work is stunning.

Come see her work at Gallery 55, on the lake, at 311 E. Lake St., McCall.
