Yep, you read that right Kaz has one regret in her business.  But it certainly has not stopped her and certainly has not stopped her from moving forward in what is now almost ten years on in the creative industry.   I chat today with Mornington Peninsula artist, Karen Morton the maker behind ‘Kaz’. This Master of Fine Art graduate in painting and ceramics uses traditional techniques to create both functional and non-functional pieces. Inspired by the simplicity of everyday objects Karen invites us to take a closer look… Unexpected symbols, nostalgic linen, and wallpaper patterns feature in her ceramics. In her work, she seeks to explore and encapsulate the bewilderment of an undiscovered object or surface. Karen likens the process of working in porcelain and resin to spending time with close friends, each material has its own personality. Porcelain is such a modest material to work with and the process is quite organic whilst resin is more controlled. Both processes share a common thread whether opening a kiln door or de-moulding a bangle there is always that element of surprise in seeing the piece for the first time. Kaz  has one of those voices I think you could listen to for hours.  And lucky cos we clocked up an hour in this one today.  We hit stop at one stage and wrapped it up but then kept chatting and wanted to talk for longer so started recording again and extended for another twenty mins!! I hope you enjoy our conversation and you would never know this was Kaz's first podcast either.  I have no doubt she will be getting calls to chat more.
