Katharine graduated in Textiles and Fashion Design a very long time ago and had a career as a textile conservator and later as an artist working with textiles. Fancying a complete change, she began ceramics classes in 2013, finding an exciting and challenging new area for trials, errors and, hopefully, the occasional success. Over the past year, she has shown her ceramics in a number of exhibitions, including the Open Art exhibition at the Little Buckland Gallery in Broadway. She is currently experimenting with metal oxides, producing small sculptural pieces with energetic colouration.
