Path and Inspiration Katharine Gray Ceramics is a studio based in rural Kent. I specialise in all forms of decorative and functional ware, from full dinner services to unique ornamental bowls and elegant vases.With a signature style that is natural and fresh, my work is inspired by the grey clay of the Connecticut River Valley where I was born and raised, the white rock of England’s southern coast where I now make my home, and the ocean in-between.
Process and Practice I like the juxtaposition between the expressiveness of the clay form and the fine detail required in the decorating and glazing process. I’m currently exploring different clay bodies and glazing techniques, continuously developing and refining my style. I’m drawn to making functional ware that people can enjoy using every day. My collection is all in stoneware, thrown, trimmed and refined on the potters wheel. It’s bisque fired to Cone 4 and glaze fired to come 6.
