Katharine Gleeson - Katie's Pottery Studio
Katharine "Katie" Gleeson graduated from Leek College of Art and Colchester College of Art with an ERAC Distinction and a Degree in Studio Ceramics. Having brought up a family Katharine has returned to her passion for ceramics opening her Studio in Leiston Suffolk. Working in high firing white earthenware she creates highly individual pieces celebrating the female form and all things feminine and elegant. Her vases, wall hangings and millinery embrace styles from the 19th and 20th Centuries with soft, flowing curves and delicate decoration often featuring lace, roses and subtle colour. Highly acclaimed as an "inspirational" teacher Katharine offers classes for all ages and abilities in traditional techniques of throwing, hand building, decorating and glazing throughout the year ranging from half day tuition to weekly courses. Especially popular are her children's classes both during term time and school holidays. An ever changing exhibition of work is displayed at her Studio and she has exhibited in Aldeburgh, Southwold and London.
