Hello, I'm Kate. I make ceramics for emotional women.
After 12 years working as in advertising, I left the corporate world behind to return to my favourite past time of squishing clay. I now work from my studio in east London creating pieces by hand.
I hand build all my pieces using traditional slab and coil techniques. I use a stoneware clay to create vases, mugs and plant pots. All my pieces are either glazed in a white matt or hand painted using colourful underglazes and finished in a shiny transparent glaze.
The first piece I sold was the Power Pose vase and it remains one of my favourite pieces to make. Studies have shown that standing with your hands on your hips for a few minutes can boost confidence and assertiveness, helping you perform better in stressful situations. Designed as a symbol of strength and courage, my customers have bought it as a gift for those going through divorce, cancer treatment and bereavement. The mini version of the vase is my bestseller, alongside the Power Pose mug.
Everything I create is designed as a reminder that our emotions are our greatest strength.
