Kathy Venter’s life-size, figurative ceramic sculpture has received widespread international acclaim.
Venter has developed a unique hand-building method to sculpt her ceramics without the use of moulds or armatures.
Her work has been published in books and art magazines on ceramics and sculpture in the U.K., the U.S.A., Canada and South Africa. She exhibits in leading contemporary fine art galleries in San Francisco, Sonoma, Palm Desert, Seattle, Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver.
Her sculpture can be found in national museums, as well as public and private collections internationally.
The Gardiner Museum of Contemporary Ceramics in Toronto and the Bellevue Arts Museum in Washington will be mounting installations of her work in 2010/2011.
Venter lives and works on Saltspring Island, British Columbia.
