Studio Bloom by ceramicist Katie Spragg is inspired by the plants found growing between cracks in the pavement outside her studio in Bermondsey. Featuring the plant Shepherd’s Purse, the piece forces us to reconsider commonplace weeds, so often unnoticed, as we would flowers in a formal garden. Indeed, Katie explores the many metaphors she feels weeds represent. Why do social and environmental factors mean we value certain things and disregard others, for example. She also admires their resilience in spite of them being pushed to the margins of our created environments.
