Kath first worked with clay at secondary school and knew this was going to be a life-long passion.

She gained a BA Hons Degree in Three-dimensional Design – Ceramics from Cardiff Art College in 1990 and have been involved in Ceramics in some way ever since.

Kath worked for five years at Prinknash Pottery and gained experience in various production techniques. After that, she went on to teach adult pottery classes for eight years and worked as a pottery and art technician in colleges and schools. I also ran ceramic sessions in school Art Weeks, including a large mural project.

I am still involved in teaching pottery to brain injury survivors at Headway, Gloucestershire.

Alongside all of this, Kath has made my own work from my studio at home. She has explored many techniques over the years including burnishing and smoke firing, raku glaze resist, throwing and traditional slip-trailing.

At present, she works in white earthenware and coloured slips and hand draw her designs using scraffito. Kath also use her own handmade ceramic stamps to make impressed designs into the soft clay.
