Katrin Moye

Katrin Moye studied English Literature and Art History at Nottingham University, where her love of ceramics led her to set up her own practice in 2005. References to classic literature, baroque interior design and Delftware can all be detected in her work, which is wheel-thrown earthenware and exquisitely handpainted. These traditional techniques make her feel connected to the long and distinguished line of European makers of decorated earthenware that stretches back for hundreds of years.

A never-ending source of inspiration is the habit of borrowing from other cultures and techniques that can be found throughout the history of North European painted ceramics, where a kind of visual game of Chinese whispers is played with amusingly misinterpreted or misunderstood references to things the makers were completely unfamiliar with.
