Katie Netley calls herself a ceramic storyteller.

Katie graduated in 2011 with a BA (Hons) in wood, metal, ceramics and plastics (material practice) from Brighton University, majoring in ceramics.

She has been making sculpture ever since, mainly in clay carving, and is very fond of the use of colour. All Katie’s work is fired to stoneware so it is suitable for outdoors. She has a small workshop in her mum’s garden along the river in Godalming, Surrey.

Katie loves learning about different cultures from far and wide, along with colour and pattern to create her work. She undertakes private commissions for personalised totem pole sculptures and planters and really enjoys creating all the different characters, she says “it’s a great excuse to do a bit of people watching”.
