Based in Manchester, Katherine designs and makes unique screen-printed porcelain vessels and contemporary porcelain jewellery.
Katherine’s porcelain vessels are individually made by hand, applying print directly to the raw clay surface through a screen. This unusual making technique is used to ensure every vessel is a one-off piece. By combing this relatively new decorating technique with porcelain pressed from Victorian vessels, Katherine produces a product that is contemporary and unique yet somehow reminds us of days gone by. Each porcelain bottle is finished with precious metal lustre around the rim and different glazes on the surface to add textures to the clay.
The inspiration for Katherine’s work is taken from Victorian antiques and amulets, especially the meaning we attach to these types of objects. She is interested in superstition and storytelling passed down over generations.
