Katharina Klug

Katharina Klug’s work centres around simplicity of design and form.  She is drawn to creating all kinds of vessels out of porcelain using an eclectic variety of tools and objects to generate a certain texture and decoration to the surface of her work.  She uses several different techniques such as carving, wax resist, scrafito and ceramic crayons to realise her design.   She mixes her own glazes and achieves the majority of her colours from oxides such as copper and cobalt. All of her work is fired to 1260C using an electric kiln.  Katharina usually works on a theme and creates a small series within it.

She is strongly influenced by the elemental colour and shape of Korean pottery and the work of Lucy Rie and Rupert Spira.
