Ceramic artist Kate Glanville works from her pottery studio in the tiny village of Bethlehem set amongst the spectacular scenery of the Brecon Beacons National Park, West Wales.
Kate Glanville was born in West Africa to Irish parents in 1968. She originally trained in fashion design at St. Martins College of Art, London. After working as a textile designer she became interested in ceramics through her ex-husband, potter, Duncan Ayscough.
Since 1990 Kate has been producing tin glazed wall tiles and tableware using brightly coloured traditional majolica glazes to create lively and original designs. Inspiration ranges from the countryside around her to the paintings of Matisse and Picasso.
Her pots have sold in many galleries and department stores both nationally and internationally including Liberty and The Conran Shop. She also produces bespoke commemorative plates and tile murals and her customers have included Prince Charles and Madonna.
