Ceramicist Kate Braine has opened an exhibition showcasing over 300 sculptural pots in her private Chelsea Studio Home. Tendril Is The Night opens at Kate Braine’s historic 18th Century townhouse today (Friday, 28 June 2019).
Kate Braine has worked independently from her historic 18th Century Townhouse in Chelsea for over 20 years, without publicly showing her works, amassing an amazing collection of striking sculptural pots. Now Kate will reveal her works for the first time, with an exhibition curated by Fru Tholstrup at the studio home itself, which has never been open to the public before.
The show will present over 300 of Kate Braine’s sculptural pots, which have been directly influenced and born from the striking interiors of her home on Cheyne Row, and appear to emerge from the walls, shelves and plinths of the unique space. In addition, the garden bears a ‘Pottery Graveyard’ of 500 glazed tendrils sprouting from the soil
Cheyne Row is a fitting location for Kate to work from given the street’s great ceramic legacy, having been the home and workshop of celebrated Victorian potter, William de Morgan.
Kate Braine’s Tendril Is The Night is open to the public from the 28th-30th June, and is available by appointment throughout July. To request bookings please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
