About

Katie Cuddon is an artist currently based in Newcastle upon Tyne where she is also a Reader in Fine Art at Newcastle University. 

Katie has been making sculptures, mostly with clay, for nearly 20 years. The work develops from an expressive and instinctive studio practice that explores psychological representations of the human body and the intimate mutual existence between art and life.  

Katie studied at Glasgow School of Art and then The Royal College of Art before becoming a Lipman Research Fellow in Ceramic Sculpture at Newcastle University. This was followed by a Sainsbury Scholarship in Sculpture and Drawing at the British School at Rome and the inaugural Ceramics Fellowship at Camden Arts Centre.  

Katie’s solo exhibitions include Spanish Lobe, Camden Arts Centre (2011) and Pontoon Lip, a collaborative exhibition with Celia Hempton at Cell Projects (2014). Her work has been acquired by numerous private collections and the Arts Council of England Collection and is currently on show in the ACE exhibition, Breaking the Mould: Sculpture by Women Since 1945 which opened at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park in May 2021. 

Katie is currently undertaking a Leverhulme Fellowship exploring the relationship between clay and writing which will culminate in a solo exhibition in Newcastle in 2022.
