Raised in Australia's multicultural tropical city of Darwin, Kath Inglis moved south to Adelaide to study contemporary jewellery. After graduating from the South Australian School of Art in 2000, Kath continued to develop her practice by working from a number of studios, including the renowned Gray Street Workshop, JamFactory's Metal Design Studio and soda and rhyme. Kath now lives in the beautiful Adelaide Hills with a studio nearby at The Barn.
Kath's passion for Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) started in 2001; a prosaic material in its natural state, but loaded with potential. Simple hand worked processes - applying colour, removing pieces from the surface with carving tools or adding heat fused layers, elevates this material into the precious.
A conceptual approach to making progresses her work:
Adding, removing, staying in motion, instinctive and flexible
Thinking of the past - looking toward the future
Reflective - responding
