Kate grew up in New Jersey and has been interested in the arts since childhood, assisting a plein air painter beginning at the age of 9. After she dove into clay, she worked with potter Terry Plasket at Wheaton Arts and Cultural Center in Millville. At age 16, she became Wheaton Arts’ youngest ever production thrower. Kate left the studio to earn a BFA at Alfred University in Alfred, New York. In 2010, Kate opened her pottery studio here in Seagrove.
Kate’s pots are made with local materials, carved with organic patterns inspired by Art Deco design, and fired in a large wood-burning kiln. Kate shows her pots throughout North Carolina and has lectured and taught in North Carolina, Tennessee, and New Jersey.
Kate’s slide lecture will focus on her work, process and inspiration. A potluck at 6 pm will begin the evening’s events, followed by the presentation at 7 pm. Come out for a great night of food and community!
Location: The NCPC Educational Building located behind the NC Pottery Center at 233 East Avenue, Seagrove, 27341.
This presentation is free and open to the public. For more information, call the center at 336-873-8430. This ongoing lecture series is facilitated by Josh Floyd, the Artist-in-Residence at the Pottery Center.
