When talking to Katie I asked her what drives her produce such induvial work
“I love nature and my home and I want my craft to embellish both. I enjoy using strange or unconsidered materials in the hope that they will elate, inspire and surprise everybody.”
Her work explores form, function & individuality. Pushing the boundaries of her creations and the materials she uses. With influences firmly placed in nature and the development of a sustainable future. The delicate way that Katie approaches these unusual materials gives her work a subtle beauty and innate individuality, which would enhance any home.

Katie works across a broad spectrum of disciplines, woods, metal, plastics and textiles.
