About

Carrie Reichardt gained a First Class degree in Fine Art at Leeds University and has had a career spanning many media, including film, performance and sculpture. She is perhaps best known as a ceramicist and mosaicist, working internationally on large scale public murals.

A renegade who is revered in anti-establishment circles, Reichardt's preoccupation with seditious ceramics places her within an artistic tradition extending back to William Morris.

She creates anarchic artworks where vintage floral, kitsch, royal and religious crockery is given a new twist by re-firing with layers of new ceramic decals They are modified in a "radical use of traditional things" and often adorned with skulls, cheeky slogans and political statements. Her first solo exhibition, entitled "Mad in England", provided an exploration of this theme, which she has continued to pursue in subsequent work.
