A ceramicist based in Penzance, Katharine Barker creates abstract sculptural pieces which evoke coastal themes.
In 1977 she graduated from art school with a degree in Textiles and Fashion Design, and worked for most of her career in textile conservation. During this time she gained a BSc from the Open University. In 2013 she joined a ceramics class, later purchasing her own kiln. Currently she is developing a range of small ceramic sculptural pieces following coastal themes.
Her work has been widely shown in Cornwall and Warwickshire.
