Katharina's work is about simplicity of design and shape, bringing these in relationship to the surface. Inspired by the elemental colour and shape of ancient Korean pottery, she creates timeless vessels for contemporary interiors. Each piece is individually made from porcelain on the potter’s wheel. Naïve, spontaneous pencil strokes, graphic simple patterns that create movement and direction. Every line is drawn by hand which makes the work preserve the moment of making. The imperfections of the patterns make it lively, rough and immediate and unique but still holding an order or direction to bind them together.
After growing up in her mother’s pottery business, she trained professionally at college in Austria and Germany for 6 years before setting up business in Cambridge in 2011. She has been given the silver award 2013 and 2015 by Craft and Design magazine in the ceramic category. In 2014 she was chosen to join the Crafts Councils Hot House program.
