“Inspired by a medium which is expressive and exquisite; fragile and durable, I try – through the ritual and rhythm of wheel throwing – to create pieces that are simple, yet beautiful. I use porcelain for its whiteness and ability make colours sing, and stoneware for its robust durability.”

Since her move to Australia in 1996, Katherine has continued to create one-off wheel thrown pieces and has also moved into creating more sculptural forms, using a wide range of materials. Katherine’s latest work has been inspired by the colours and textures in Sydney's landscape particularly the sandstone that abounds in the area.
