Kathy make pots intended for functional and decorative use. To transform a ball of clay into a cup or bowl continues to inspire her. Her work includes horse-hair decoration as well as low fire flashing of pinks, grays and blacks on white clay using a method derived from Native American potters. These pieces are unusual and unpredictable. It is the firing that makes the decoration. Kathy's functional ware, on the other hand, is microwave, dishwasher and oven safe.
