Katharina Klug’s practice focuses primarily on the exploration of form, whilst striving for perfection in the shape of the vessel. In contrast, she deliberately embraces imperfections in her surface pattern designs, which she draws freehand onto each work using her trademark crayons. Her work is marked by strong opposites, not only between shape and pattern but between the inside and the outside colour and detail of her pots.
I am a potter, artist, business woman, maker [and] designer, depending on the time of day. The studio and my life are now based in Cambridge. Originally, I was born in Austria and brought up to work with clay. My mother Annamaria is still making and running a Pottery in the village of Stainz. Since building a workshop and starting my practice in the UK, […] year by year I come closer to making the porcelain vessels I dream of.
