Kate specializes in functional studio pottery, working in thrown and hand built porcelain and high fire reduction. She often uses Shino glazes — a formula developed by master potter Malcolm Davis—in which the reduction atmosphere produces an interesting effect, and she likes to experiment with combining wood-ash glazes and the Shino to provide surface contrast. Wax resist and decorative incising that cuts through the wax allow her to separate and introduce distinctive complementary glazes.
