www.craftanddesign.net is holding a national annual award in several craft disciplines including ceramics – and believe it or not I made it to the silver award! I am over the moon!
“A skilled thrower with excellent techniques and a unique sense of style, each piece of work produced by Katharina is both individual and varied. Influenced by Lucy Rie and Rupert Spira her work demonstrates its own unique interpretation experimenting with textures and surface decoration using interesting objects and vibrant colours.” Judge Alan Ault
I am so happy I won this award and I would like to thank anyone who voted for my shortlisting!

I am really happy to have made it into this group of incredible talented people and proud to show my pots next to their works. See you in Farnham!
Ten potters…ten pieces… and their personal vision of what it means to make clay ‘sing’ It may the perfect glaze recipe, a way of centering the clay on the wheel, or a favorite firing method; there are as many opinions as there are potters. This exhibition of wheel-thrown work by East Anglian Makers will feature 100 pieces, all for sale, ranging from bowls and mugs, to vases and sculpture. The one proviso is that every work must be thrown on the potter’s wheel. Here is the link to a video of the first wheel demonstration. http://youtu.be/V3AcnoDoqjA
Even though my studio looks at the moment like a ski-chalet in the alps – pots get made and fired. These new cups can be seen and bought at the Over Gallery near Cambridge. A brand new venue on the High Street of Over run by the lovely Helen Taylor.
The cups were made on the wheel from a very translucent porcelain called southern ice and glazed on the inside and only partially on the outside with my celadon green glaze.
Here is a peek into my newest work – “sunset on mars” where I have experimented with a new glaze in a raspberry tone and set as contrast the plain porcelain with black cracks. That is how imagine how the red planet would look like.
After a successful and busy winter season I would like to wish everyone a wonderful Christmas and a happy new year! It was great to meet so many new people this year and to have great opportunities to show my work to the world.
I would like to invite you to my Workshop in Cherry Hinton. This is a joint exhibition with Andrea, who works with textiles. So please come and join us for a hot drink and a chat.

Cambridge Christmas 2012
A group of contemporary arts and crafts professionals takes this opportunity close to Christmas to exhibit works which make ideal Christmas gifts. It is always a one night, one-off evening that has been described by visitors as a magical, warm, and personal event that they look forward to each year. It is a fun way of shopping for gifts and it is also an opportunity to share a glass of mulled cider and nibble on a mince pie and get to know the very talented artists personally.
The date for the next Cambridge Christmas show is Monday 26 November 2012. Doors will open at 4 pm and will close at 8.30 pm. Unitarian Church Hall, 4 Victoria St, off Emmanuel Road, Cambridge CB1 1JW. Look for the fairy lights.
