BA Hons (Fine Art)
Hello, I'm Kate. I make sculptural, hand built ceramic forms inspired by nature, wildlife and domestic animals.
Pottery is my rediscovered passion and also the perfect antidote to my day job as a Visual Effects artist. I work at a post production studio in Soho, London creating computer Visual Effects for films. I have been privileged to work on many amazing projects during my career including Harry Potter, The Dark Knight & The Martian.
I loved pottery at school but like so many people lost contact with it for many years.
My love of ceramics was re-born when I took a ceramics course after moving to Hertfordshire in 2013. Now I'm obsessed, my every spare moment is spent either reading and learning about pottery or out in my studio working with clay, creating a new piece, trying out new techniques, experimenting with colour and developing glazes. There is so much to learn and so many different techniques to try, it's a fascinating, absorbing process and I love it.
I am lucky enough to live in the beautiful Hertfordshire countryside where I am surrounded by the nature that inspires my work. I see something beautiful and can't wait to get out to my studio to make it. This can be a landscape, a tree, a ghostly white barn owl swooping over my car on my way home in the evening or the fallow deer I have never quite forgiven for eating my flower bed or a cheeky little Jack Russell out on his daily walk.
I hope you enjoy my work as much as I enjoyed and loved making it.
