Our Potters

There are hundreds of studio potters and ceramists all over Australia producing unique, beautiful work. At Living Clay Australia we have focussed on the ones who specialise in innovative, functional pottery items that you can use, enjoy and display on a daily basis.

In addition to displaying and selling their work, we are also keen to promote and celebrate the individual artists and potters who produce them, so every item in our online gallery tells you a story about who created it, how it was made and some facts on the individual potter as well. The Potter's profile will be retained in our database for as long as they continue to be part of the Living Clay family even if they do not have any pieces to sell right now so you can look them up at any time.

If you are a potter yourself viewing this site and would like to find out more about how to become part of the Living Clay Australia family, just drop us a note through the contact us page and we will send you a link to access more information on how it all works. We will need to know a little more about you and your work and will also ask you to send us a couple of photographs of some recent pieces to start that ball rolling.

England
Katherine’s ceramics are represented in many museums throughout Asia and in private and corporate collections worldwide. She trained as a production thrower in the UK in the mid-1970s, taking an apprenticeship with Keith Harding at Cranbrook Station Pottery. After managing one of Cranbrook Station’s branch potteries, Katherine and her brother opened their own pottery studio in Kent (Fulling Mill Pottery) and produced a range of domestic ware.

Hong Kong
Katherine then moved to Hong Kong where she was heavily influenced by Asia’s rich history of ceramics. This influence inspired her to start producing single pieces of ceramic which she exhibited very successfully. She started to gain an international reputation and her work was sought worldwide. Katherine’s stoneware and porcelain pieces are glazed mainly in cool green, blues and stark white, colours influenced by her study of her craft in Asia.

Australia
Since her move to Australia in 1996, Katherine has continued to design and create one-off, wheel thrown, functional pieces and has also moved into creating more sculptural forms, using a wide range of materials. Most of her pieces are sold privately or through galleries.

Recent exhibitions in Australia include:

2014/15    "Artisans in the Garden" at the Botanic Gardens in Sydney (both years)

2015        "At the Table" a solo exhibition of at the Mu Gallery in Sydney

2014        “Connections” exhibition at the Hat Hill Gallery, in the Blue Mountains was an exhibition in collaboration with Cate Dudley, a Sydney based artist 

2011        Designed and created a range of work for the Art Gallery of NSW to compliment the Mad Square Exhibition.
