Katy Fogg is a potter who chooses her glaze materials and chemicals with the environment in mind.
Katy’s pottery uses glaze chemicals such as iron, which are not harmful to our planet and found in abundance. Katy has created a beautiful bounty of pottery which is rich in earthly tones.
Katy Fogg has been creating pottery that is artistically unique and aesthetically striking for over 17 years. Dedicated to integrity and detail, she carefully crafts each piece by hand. Her business is based on principles of sustainability, community, and environmental sensitivity. Creating functional, durable art from raw clay and minerals, Katy aims to infuse some of the simple things of life with care and intention. She prepares her own glazes, ensuring that they are long-lasting and non-toxic. The intricate glaze patterns, inspired by mandala designs, are created using a batik-like process. Mimicking natural earth processes, she also grows willemite and iron crystals within the surface of her glazes. These intricate flower-like forms and subtle shimmers of light offer their own beauty, adding depth and complexity to the glaze surface. Lightweight and refined, Living Earth feels magical to the touch and adds a simple beauty to everyday rituals.
“I love seeing my pots in action and I get to do this everyday at our Coffee Bar Red Tree Coffee in Tin Town. Both myself and my partner are very focused on creating the simple things of life locally (with intention and integrity), that includes my pottery and my partner Simon’s Coffee. We serve up artisan coffee from locally roasted, responsibly sourced coffee beans at his coffee bar ‘Red Tree” in Tin Town and… we serve it in my handmade pottery – talk about a perfect fit.
