Katie Robbins

Working out of her garden studio in Birmingham, Katie creates porcelain vessels which bring luxury to everyday moments in the home.

A lover of the natural world, especially plants and flowers, she combines her passions to inform a contemporary range of ceramics. From vases and mugs to candle-holders, these simple shapes are finished in a palette of emotive colours including pastels and shades inspired by the sea. She makes beautiful heirloom items which encourage mindfulness for everyday living, like taking your time over a cuppa, arranging blooms in a vase or lighting a candle.

She loves the feel of a thrown item, which leaves the trace of the hand that made it. She uses porcelain, often considered a luxury material, as it has a fine delicate finish on which the colours appear so much brighter.
