1. We spent a beautiful spring's afternoon in Katharina's workshop and garden. The sun shining, the whir of the potters wheel, birds singing, it was a wonder we got everything done. To spend time surrounded by Katharina's fine work and in her good company was a joy. We recommend you take the opportunity to visit the studio, meet Katharina and see her many vessels for real. There is a clarity and calm, that is present in the air and distilled into the porcelain of Katharinas pots.

    Katharina in her own words from her website katharina.klug-art.com

    My work is about simplicity of design and form. I am drawn to creating vessels of all kinds, and I am inspired by the elemental colour and shape of ancient Korean pottery as well as the outstanding works of Lucy Rie and Rupert Spira.

    When creating the pot, I try to achieve balance and stability. I make each piece as a one-off, but I create small series when I work on a theme.When I decorate, I use natural forms and rudimentary patterns which are pressed, scraped, or stuck to the pot’s surface.

    What I love about ceramic is that it starts of as a soft lump and can become pretty much anything you want it to be. After the firing it is hard and durable and can survive centuries. But at the same time it’s fragile and can be broken into pieces in a moment.
