Katalina Caliendo USA, b. 1982

Katalina graduates from Royal College of Art, and was 2019 QEST Allchurches Trust Scholar. She considers clay a material for both creating aesthetically interesting art objects and for facilitating vital explorations of our relationship to and place within, the material and natural world.


For her Imbrication series, finger-sized pieces are removed from one lump of clay and placed in overlapping layers; a single process which is through accumulation of mass - stimulating discussions on the connection between the human built environment and nature.


"I draw inspiration from collaborative making processes and inter-woven dynamics that exist in nature. I intend to continue to research how craft facilitates vital explorations with our relationship to the world and how we situate ourselves within it."
