Katie uses hand-building techniques to create individual works. This takes on a variety of forms, but experiments with more sculptural work often lead back to producing vessel forms. Katie enjoys the slow and relatively controlled process of coiling as it allows time for thinking and reacting to the material at different stages.
Currently a limited pallet of colours coming from a range of clays, under glazes and oxides creates a sense of coherence across the work. More recently Katie has started to glaze the interior of the vessel forms which contrasts the matt exterior.
