Katie-Ann Houghton aims to challenge the culture of mass consumption by creating work with innovative design and handmade quality.
Katie’s design philosophy is based around the idea that the objects that we engage with every day should engage our senses and bring us joy through use. Designed to be both functional and practical, Katie aims to change the conventional expectations of tableware, and have us view each piece as both a piece of contemporary design and an object of use.
Katie-Ann Houghton is an Artist, Designer and Maker based in Sydney, Australia. Her contemporary works are inspired by early 20th Century Design and embody a decade long passion for traditional Venetian glassmaking techniques.
