About the artists:

Thomas Aitken and Kate Hyde work from their studio in Warsaw, Ontario. They collaborate on ceramics that unite Thomas’ strong forms and Kate’s interest in colour and surface embellishment. Their work is designed to be both practical and visually intriguing. Their whimsical imagery references a variety of sources, including the history of ceramics, theatre, poetry, and textile.

Both artists have taught and lectured in a variety of contexts, including art schools and museums.

They have participated in numerous annual juried shows, solo and group exhibitions in Canada, Denmark, Australia, UK, and USA. They have undertaken many private and public commissions. Their work is in public and private collections in Europe, Japan, and North America.
To feed their creative spirits, they have taken part in artist residencies in Denmark, Canada, the Czech Republic, and Hungary.

Thomas holds a BFA from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, Halifax, Canada, and Kate received her BA(Hons) from Middlesex Polytechnic, London, UK. They met while studying at the Masters program in Ceramics at the University of Wales Institute Cardiff, Cardiff, UK.
