Katherine Pogson is a London-based designer-maker and Visiting Maker in Leatherwork at Pitt Rivers Museum. Katherine will present the process and outcomes of her residency, during which she has focussed on leather vessels in the museum’s collection. These include African powder horns and water bottles from Sudan, India and Europe, documented as being ‘of peculiar constriction'. Katherine has been studying the decorative and structural join devices, layering, texture and general form of these objects to influence her practice and develop new work.
