Welcome to the Katy Lynn Pottery maker page, I’m Katy, a potter with a serious plant obsession! I’ve been making ceramic plant accouterments- hanging planters, tabletop planters, propagation stations (both hanging and tabletop versions), and bud vases professionally since 2021. Truly though, my love of clay blossomed in the seventh grade when my ice cream coil vase won a gold key at the scholastics art show. I was hooked! I love the versatility of the squishy, moldable clay and I try to capture its softness in the curvy, pillowy walls of my forms. Thanks for checking me out!
ABOUT MY PRODUCTS
My creative process involves porcelain and stoneware clay thrown on the potters wheel, then I incorporate hand-building by altering my thrown forms with darts, much like a seamstress making pleats. I pleat my work to give it a triangular look, then dress my forms with carvings using geometry. The carvings are created with a scalpel and filled with cobalt, a technique referred to as Mishima, which inlays the cobalt onto the pot’s surface.
My plant accouterments line is perfect for that plant lover in your life! Every piece has a drainage hole because…we like live plants here at KLP, and great drainage keeps those green friends thriving!
I also have a line of home accessory products which includes- oil lamps, beverage crocks, cups, and holiday ornaments. All designed to add minimalistic beauty to your life with clean crisp blues, whites, and neutrals.
Annnnnd I make earrings! Each pair is hand-pinched to ensure thin, lightweight, breezing wearing. Perfect for that fashionista looking for unique flare!
