Natalie Collins works predominantly with porcelain, experimenting with it’s fascinating unpredictable qualities and creating delicate structures, inspired by themes of loss and discovery, imagined and real.
Alongside making her own work she gains great enjoyment from involving the general public in her love for art and making. Natalie has worked on craft projects with people aged 1 to 100 and believes you can bring a smile to anyone’s face once you involve them in a messy art project. Recently she has worked on the Falmouth University outreach program ‘Bootup!’, running weekly workshops for 13 year old pupils. This involved teaching ceramic techniques and constructing and firing a pit kiln. The exciting results from this project can be found at:
