Kate began pottery at Standpoint Studios in Shoreditch and was fortunate to have Nicola Tassie as her teacher. It was under Nicola’s guidance that she learnt the technical skills of pottery and the magic of creating ceramics, on a potter’s wheel.
After five years, what began as a hobby, developed into a life long obsession and a new way of life. Kate set up a studio in Hackney where she had a regular pitch at Broadway Market. This was a great starting point for selling her work.
She is now an established potter based in Shiplake, South Oxfordshire. Making contemporary utility ware in Stoneware and Porcelain. Kate works with traditional oriental glazes but tends to keep a part of each pot raw, showing the natural beauty of the clay. The aim is to create something both functional and beautiful. All ceramics are handmade on a potter’s wheel and then reduction fired in a gas kiln.
The Stoneware is Oven and Dishwasher proof and the Porcelain is Dishwasher proof.
