Kat Wheeler works from her studio in rural North Norfolk. Her work is predominantly wheel thrown and high fired stoneware and oak smoked raku. Her pallet is generally of a natural and calming tone and stems from her desire to echo the landscape around her from the earth tones of the pebble beaches along the Norfolk Coast to the large open skies that are reflected in the sea. From functional tableware to large statement pieces her forms are designed to contrast the beauty of the raw clay against the glazed surface. She uses the Raku process alongside her stoneware work and produces functional statement pieces as a step away from the usual non functional raku form. Her work is designed to be tactile and graceful.
