Katy makes decorative work in porcelain and stoneware, producing vases and bowels by hand from slabs of clay. Katy has particular interest in surface design and especially the use of printing techniques onto clay - sometimes imprinting organic matter directly but she also uses screen printing to transfer images of trees, seedheads, grasses and birds to her pieces.
As Katy lives on the coast she is frequently inspired by patterns made by seaweed, pebbles, fossils and driftwood.
