Katy predominantly works in ceramics, using the hand-made forms as a canvas for her interest in the tradition of storytelling. “I love the idea of little scenes or still lifes that are of things that could be easily ignored. But by making them from clay they become special." The socio-historical associations that this medium has, in particular with the Greek tradition, are a constant source of inspiration.
Katy completed a residency at ALMA ZEVI, Venice in March-April 2019, and her first solo exhibition Price Choppers took place at ALMA ZEVI, London (UK) in October 2020. Her work was included in Every Woman Biennial, London, UK (2021), is currently on display in the touring museum exhibition Welcome to My World: Ceramics with Narrative at the Burton in Bideford (2021), and has been included in the group show, Cracked curated by Leonie Mir at Tristan Hoare, London (2021).
