In recent years, Kay has been developing an emerging fine art practice. This has been a direct result of participating in residencies, which provide space and time to develop new ideas and projects. Her body of work Botanical Structures was developed at Guldagergaard International Ceramic Research Centre in Denmark in 2013. The first version was a private commission for a conservatory in Brighton. She returned to Guldagergaard in 2014 to create Botanical Structures II and III, which were exhibited at Fantastic Tales, The Ceramic House and the Regency Townhouse, Brighton. Botanical Structures IV, a solo installation at Rønne Library, Bornholm was part of European Ceramic Context 2014. In A Shetland Landscape is the second body of this type of work and is an ambitious merging of ceramics and sound in collaboration with sound artist Joseph Young.
