About

Cat's Ceramics..... Handmade Ceramics by Cat Brown

Cat Brown's unique range of ceramics are handmade using ancient pottery hand building techniques and fired using 100% eco friendly renewable green energy! Each piece is individually handmade in small batches and one off pieces, created without the use of a potter's wheel or moulds. Built with function in mind with a sculptural twist and designed to last you a lifetime!

Deeply inspired by nature and the natural world, many of my designs feature the imprints and textures of real plants and flowers, tree bark and shells. I like to combine this love of nature with my passion for modern design to create unique and contemporary ceramics that unite the old with the new, that celebrate the beauty of things 'imperfect', relish the spontaneous and the individual touches. As well as using green energy I try wherever possible to incorporate eco friendly practises in my work and business.

Cat's Ceramics started almost by accident when I joined a ceramics course on my days off from (a proper boring!) 9-5 job. I totally fell in love with the possibilities of clay and when the course came to an end I was staggered to be asked to apprentice for the tutor taking the course! She took me under her wing (so to speak) and taught me all she knew. Slowly but surely I started building up my own range of ceramic pieces which I tentatively started selling at galleries, fairs and here on Etsy!

Needless to say the rest is history and my range of ceramics has grown and developed over the years and Cat's Ceramics is now stocked in galleries and shops across the UK and abroad.
My work has been featured in publications, blogs and online and I have recently collaborated with Anthropologie on a line of trinket dishes which are available to buy in the US and online.

I have lots of exciting plans for Cat's Ceramics as I extend the range, design new pieces, form exciting collaborations and build upon my eco friendly ethos and practises. I hope you like what I create!

Thanks for stopping by,
