Katie produces hand-painted porcelain jugs, cups, cake stands and brooches made using a variety of slip casting and hand-building techniques. Each piece is essentially a canvas for decoration and collage as she combines drawings with found ephemera.

Katie is inspired by nostalgia, old paper ephemera, vintage textiles and a love of drawing.

Katie’s collection uses elements from a different era alongside her own drawings, text and collage. She focuses on pattern and detail using mixed media to collage and juxtapose the found and made. The pieces she creates are unique, one-offs that explore a variety of nostalgic themes that Katie is always adding to.

Currently her themes are; the notions of afternoon tea, ‘Oh I do like to be beside the seaside’, gardening and flowers, and traditional blue and white pottery.
