Katie Almond Ceramics

Each piece of Katie Almonds ceramic work is a canvas for decoration and collage. She combines drawings with found, vintage ephemera. She is inspired by nostalgia, paper ephemera, vintage textiles and a love of drawing. Katie has always been fascinated by objects that have a history.

Nostalgic themes constantly revisit her work such as afternoon tea, the seaside, gardening, and her love of traditional blue and white pottery.

The porcelain pieces she creates are unique, one-offs produced using a variety of slip casting and hand-building techniques. All incorporate her own drawings with found nostalgic imagery by using both hand painting and transfers, additionally many have the added opulence of applied bright gold lustre.
