Every piece is one of a kind. This is a sampling of pottery that has already found a home.

As a potter and an art teacher, I always try to make connections between what I am doing in the studio and what I am doing in the classroom. One thing I have learned from my students is to be open-minded when it comes to working. I enjoy creating functional pottery: plates, platters, boxes, and pitchers, and then I manipulate the surface to make it more enticing. I treat the clay like canvas or paper, brushing on layers of glaze and wax to create a layered, dimensional surface. I like simple shapes, geometry, lines and children’s drawings. I think these primitive designs speak to all generations. With this work, I have tried to keep in mind what I tell my students: “Try something new; you never know what the results will be!”

About Kate

I began my work in ceramics as a teacher's assistant for children's clay classes at a community art center in Summit, NJ, while in high school. I sat down at the wheel, made a huge mess, and was hooked. I continued to focus on clay while an art major in college, and then continued to make work while beginning my career as an art teacher in Minnesota, then New Jersey. I am now happily potting when I'm not in the classroom.
