Kathryn Ashcroft

Mixed Media

After graduating with First Class honours in Theatre Design at Nottingham Trent University in 2000, and working for several years in the Art education sector, I draw from these experiences to create enchanting small-scale mixed-media sculptures of mice, which explore the metaphors of industriousness, invisibility and acceptance. As a child of the 80s, growing up in Yorkshire, I've always loved clunky, rickety, children's stop-frame animations, which champion the underdog, and beautiful, inky children's book illustrations, which allowed me to escape into an alternate world. I work with unglazed and unglazed, torn Parian porcelain combined with salvaged textiles to produce free-standing and wall-mountable sculptural pieces, which are either set on a ceramic or wooden base or housed in a wooden box. The pieces are highly detailed to the standard of Theatre Design concept models.
