About TATTY K

My Background

3 gingko leaf bowl, inspired by the colours in fallen leaves.

I love the creative process, being inspired by nature and travel, plus sharing my skills with others.

I graduated from an Advanced Diploma of Ceramics in 2004, became a pottery teacher at a community pottery studio for 7 years, worked part time in a glass slumping studio,  became an accredited silver Precious Metal Clay instructor in 2005, then moved back to Adelaide in 2010. 

In 2011, I set up Studio Tatty K in Littlehampton SA and now run adults and children's pottery classes, community mixed media art programs, facilitate public art and work on exhibition work through my studio. 

Kiln firing services and pottery materials  also available for sale at the studio.

My Medium

Hand shaped bowl inspired by Japanese tea bowl making technique

I use many different mediums, but clay was my first love. I enjoy the pliability of a fresh piece of clay and it's so many possible outcomes. However, if I can shape it, texture it, heat it or experiment with it then I will use it. Some of my forays include gapfiller as a painting medium, metal in a clay form, mixed media, cement, polymer clay, weaving and mosaic

My Inspiration

1 panel of 8, public art mural by Tatty K, Rebecca Prince and the Pyrographix Youth Public Art Crew

I have spent a lot of my childhood and adult adventures in natural environments, so the beauty of nature always reappears in my work, especially as colour, texture, form, composition and shape. I am also inspired by stories (love, loss, overcoming adversity, community, personal, shared). Often these themes are sharpened or refined throughout the creative process, during experimentation and whilst overcoming technical challenges.
