Palm House by ceramicist Katie Spragg is a mixed media composition drawing influence from the Palm House at Kew Gardens.

Palm House by ceramicist Katie Spragg is inspired by the Palm House at Kew Gardens. This piece takes the form of a miniature glasshouse section - a wooden frame supporting clear and textured glass with a polished concrete base, housing intricately modelled porcelain plants. The Palm House explores the way that plants grow behind glass alongside Katie's ongoing fascination with the relationship between the way we cultivate nature and how it grows freely.

Process

Each porcelain plant was hand-modelled using a variety of techniques. They were then fired and carefully assembled onto the concrete inside the dome.
