About Karin Findell Ceramics

Karin Findell Ceramics

I’m a rustic designer maker with a love of nature and a curiosity for everything

I first sunk my hands into clay before I went to school, as my mum and dad were both keen knight school potters. As most potters do they became obsessed with the medium and set up a little pottery in our old garage. So I have been faffing about with the stuff for years. I studied glass and ceramics at uni and from there got a job designing tableware for Hornsea pottery. I was there for three years before moving across the Pennines to set up my own little back garden pottery.
My work is inspired by nature, mainly animals and flowers. I make handmade stamps and use these to make up my designs along with hand made stencils and some hand drawing as well. I work in stoneware and brush on glazes, I fire up to 1200 c and use a sand based medium that gives me a lovely biscuit coloured base to glaze on. I make using coiling and slumping techniques. This gives my work a slight wonk, with just adds to their charm and character. They are very textural and im often complimented on how tactile my work is. I also work in white stoneware and use sgraffito to decorate. Each piece is painted in layers of coloured slips once dry enough I scratch draw and carve through these layers to reveal the clay body beneath. I add wire that is fired into the clay as an extra little design feature and add dots of contrasting colour to make extra impact. Everything is safe to use, you can put them in the microwave the dishwasher the oven and they are also frost proof! Tough as old boots :)
I started making seriously in 2012, travelling every where doing markets and fairs. I still do a selection of seasonal fairs around and about, if you visit
karinfindellceramics.co.uk
Any fairs will be listed there.
I also provide work for the following outlets,

Gallery in the gardens, Buxton pavilion gardens as a member of the High peak artists,
2 Doors studio, Alsager
The artful pigeon, Glossop
Era, Leek

I sell online both here and on my Etsy shop and my web site

    Lovely soap dish. Very happy with it. Arrived quickly.

    Reviewed by Malcolm

    Our soap dishes arrived very promptly, with excellent packaging - just enough to keep them safe - so, not too much waste.
    The soap dishes themselves exceeded our expectations and we would have no hesitation to buy again.
    Strongly recommend this seller.
