She's been doing this for years and is actually quite good at it now.

Seriously though....Katie grew up surrounded by DIY projects and handmade crafts. Family motor-caravanning holidays in Europe, admiring cathedrals and chateaux, ignited her love of architectural ornament. After an Art Foundation course at Kingston Poly, Katie graduated from Bristol Poly with a ceramics BA Hons degree in the 90’s. Katie has been making in clay ever since. Although other skills have tempted her into part time work over the years (including professional gift-wrapping and building flat packed furniture!) currently she continues to make as much as possible in her garden workshop while raising a family. Hand-building with slabs of stoneware clay, she makes house number and name plaques to order.
