About Karen Bunting

Karen was born and brought up in Yorkshire.  She graduated from London University with a degree in chemistry, but quickly realised that this was not the career for her.  After a brief stint programming computers in the early 70’s, she discovered pottery and felt she had arrived home.  She had always been someone who enjoyed making, and ceramics was the perfect combination of form and function.  

After working with a potter on the Yorkshire coast, Karen moved to Brixton and set up her first studio in an Acme studio on Acre Lane.  A few years later, she moved her workshop to her home in Hackney and built a gas kiln.  she started reduction firing and this enabled her to develop her work further, utilising the unifying nature of atmospheric firing.  She have lived and worked in Hackney for over forty years and has brought up her children here with her artist husband, Peter Bunting. 

She have been making and selling pots now for nearly fifty years, and have exhibited and sold work in galleries and ceramic events both here and abroad.   

In 2021 she was made an Honorary Fellow of the CPA having been chair of the orgnisation for several years and overseen the move to Bloomsbury.  In 2002 she set up and have since overseen the Ceramics in the City event which is back this year at the Museum of the Home
