Katie Coston's Profile
My name is Katie, and I'm a potter. The thing that draws me to clay is its impressionable nature. You can give it almost any texture. It will keep that texture, and what was once so temporary and changeable becomes permanent after a firing. You'll see a lot of textures from the earth represented in my pieces. You'll probably begin to notice how much I enjoy the elegance and life that I find in the created world around me. I want to translate that to the clay. Many of my pieces have a tiny shell impressed somewhere on the body, or the texture of a bit of coral. I hope you'll enjoy finding these small bits of earth in my work. Wedding earth with earth seems only natural.
