Collection: Kat Wheeler

St. Ives, UK

Kat Wheeler earned her BFA in ceramics at the Appalachian Center for Crafts in Smithville, Tennessee. She worked for established studio potters Judy Brater and Peter Rose. Wheeler is currently the Deputy Studio Manager at The Leach Pottery in St Ives, England. Her recent work is influenced by experimentation with Hakeme brush decorations in Mashiko during her residency at the Hamada Workshop. Wheeler continues the development and production of her own work. Wheeler says, “Working production in such an intensive environment. The Leach Pottery and being surrounded and encouraged by the enthusiasm of our talented workshop team has had a profound impact on me and my work. I enjoy the repetition of throwing simple forms and using contrasting slips to create texture and individuality to my range of pots.”
