Katrin Moye creates such beautiful ceramics and watercolours. Here’s a few images of items from her past ranges.

Presently, her work has developed into a different style. Using paper stencils and dots of glaze applied by hand, Katrin builds up these elaborate and almost magical designs. Inspired by natural woodland, farmland scenes and forest animals, she carefully layers delicate and harmonious colours and shapes.

To me, these designs appear christmassy, almost Scandinavian and visually bursting with a soft explosion of stars, that draws the viewer in to explore the work in more detail.

She has also released a set of four 1960’s inspired designs, produced with transfers to cater for a mass market demand. Lovely work.

When she’s not creating masterpieces out of clay, Katrin is busy with her watercolours. Painting illustrations which reveal her love for pattern, foliage and light.

Katrin translates these beautiful watercolours into designs for greeting cards, you can see more on the Down To Earth site.

    She’s a favourite of mine too. Those large plates are wondrous. I bet she creates beautiful iced cakes too!

    Beautiful, how painstakingly patient she must be, love the sequence of photos of how she makes the plates x

      Thanks Mel. Yes the insight into Katrin’s making of the plates is fascinating. Thanks for your comment.

    Her work truly is a reflection of her… fresh, light, happy, all sunshiny! This is like a breath of fresh air, of spring to come. Blue is so ‘in’ now, especially Indigo. I want everything here.

    Beautiful, thank you so very much for introducing us to Katrin. For me there is more than a hint of Marimekko in her design, really wonderful work!

      I’m sure it’s an unintentional link to Marimekko on Katrin’s part, but she is influenced by 1960’s home-wares so it’s possible. I like your thinking : )

    I love these and for a while have hoped to do paint on ceramics myself. Do you happen to know what types of paints she uses?

      I’m sorry I don’t but you could try sending her an email to ask. Good luck.
