the maker behind claymake

Hi, I'm Kate, thank you for stopping by my corner of the world.

I create handmade pottery intended to brighten everyday life, as it has done with mine …

About ten years ago, I was diagnosed with a tremor I thought would hinder my ability to create the art I wanted. And then there was ceramics - the type of art that doesn't require you to draw a straight line or paint inside the lines. When I'm sitting down at the wheel, it's a rhythm that doesn’t get interrupted by my shaking. When I am making pottery, I find joy in the movement and a passion for the process -

beginning and ending with love.

every piece is created, glazed, fired and packaged by me
