Katie grew up around pottery, working during her high school years in her father’s studio ‘of Cabbages & Kings’ in Canmore, Alberta.  She is now sharing the studio space and making her living as a potter. 

Katie studied at art school and spent a year apprenticing to a goldsmith in Canmore, before settling in to clay as a medium.  Her work is primarily wheel thrown, using a high firing stoneware clay.  The glazes that she uses are all food safe, and her pottery is microwave, dishwasher, and oven friendly.

She has been working full time in the pottery since September of 2005 and has developed a colourful line of functional pottery that she sells from the studio as well as in galleries throughout Canada.
