Catherine Tate is a Sydney based ceramic artist with a background in graphic design. Before finding clay more than ten years ago Tate worked as fashion editor, art director and stylist.
On one hand her work is informed by architecture and interiors from contemporary minimalism to ancient architecture in rich decay. On the other she looks at textures, colours and the rhythm of the natural world to bring her hybrid forms to life.
Tate is constantly developing her work experimenting with slips, oxides, underglazes, glazes and a mixture of clays, stoneware and earthenware which she fires in her own kiln at her studio on the coast of Sydney.
