Katrin Moye makes highly decorative, domestic ceramics and one off collectors’ pieces
All of her ceramics are hand made (wheel thrown or hand cast) in white earthenware clay, with decorations hand applied with coloured slips and underglazes, using a variety of decorating techniques including paper cut resists, trailing, sponging and painting.
Her decorative style and subject matter recalls her childhood memories of growing up in England and Germany in the 1970s, with direct references to her German family roots and Scandinavian style influences from her Danish godmother. Items remembered from this time, including folk art, textiles, book illustrations and home made crafts plus particular items such as herb jars, coffee pots and cushions, all take their place in the iconography of her patterns and drawings.
A more recent development of her work has taken her in a new direction exploring the detailed repeating patterns found in tree and plant life, and an interest in mid century English artists such as John and Paul Nash, Eric Ravilious and Enid Marx.
Katrin’s work has become much sought after and is represented in galleries and in specialist retailers such as Liberty.
