Karen Hare

Mediums: Wood

With a background in fine arts, a degree in Environmental design and a professional career working with reclaimed wood, Karen Hare has become a maker by practice. Now able to realize her designs into physical work, this varied background has carried her into a place where she finds a balance between sculpture and the utilitarian object.

For Karen, working with wood allows form to emerge through the inherit properties of the material itself. She looks to grain pattern and character to define the line at which she begins and from there, it is her hands that find its place as a useful object. Karen is in a continuous conversation with her medium, seeking poetry in material things.
