Katrin makes mainly wheel thrown ceramics for table, kitchen and bathroom. Ceramics is her second career. She has a background in social science and so she wants her pots to accompany people as they go about their lives.
The shapes and surfaces of her pieces are functional, tactile and clear. She is particularly interested in lines and pulls that emerge when glazes, clay body, slips and oxides react with each other in the kiln.
Katrin has recently returned to London after spending two years in Thomastown in County Kilkenny, S.E Ireland, where she completed The Design & Crafts Council of Ireland’s Ceramics Skills and Design Training Course. She was one of just 6 non-Irish makers to be accepted onto this increasingly prestigious course, following in the footsteps of the likes of Florian Gadsby, Derek Wilson & Adam Buick.
Today she lives, works and teaches in London. Find out more on Instagram: @katrin.d.maier
