Kath makes slip decorated and scraffitto white earthenware pieces in her own designs

When I was a child I loved to draw, sew, knit and make things from plasticine. When I first worked with clay I knew this was going to be a life-long passion. It was always my dream to make a living from making things.

 

I studied a Degree in Ceramics in Cardiff and have been involved in ceramics in some way ever since.

 

I worked for five years in a small pottery factory before going on to teach various adult pottery classes and being a pottery technician .

 

Alongside all this I have always made my own work . Since 2008 I have been selling my own work full-time, designing and making a range of home accessories and gifts.

 

My inspiration comes from childhood memories , pattern in textiles and visiting museums . I am very interested in traditional pottery and craft techniques and keeping these skills alive.

 

I work in a white earthenware clay and use underglaze colours and coloured slips and hand- made clay stamps to add decoration . I want to make beautiful hand-made products that are affordable and a pleasure to have in your home.
