Katharina Klug creates timeless, monochrome porcelain vessels for contemporary interiors. Her ceramics epitomise simplicity in design and shape and are inspired by ancient Korean
pottery as well as the environment around her. She finds 'lines jumping out of almost anything - from stripes on cloth, wires and cables, plants and grasses, to architecture and streets.
Each piece is individually thrown in porcelain on the potter's wheel and then decorated by hand with spontaneous linear strokes or graphic patterns using home-made wax crayons and a wax-resist technique.
Her 'signature' is black and white, creating movement and direction, but she often gives her pots a bright interior, making the work 'pop'.
Katharina grew up in her mother's pottery business and trained professionally in Austria and Germany for 6 years before setting up business in Cambridge in 2011. Since then she has achieved great recognitioin and several accolades. These include:
2018: Featured in the 289 issue of Ceramic Review (Masterclass)
