Spotlight on Katy Leigh - Ceramic Artist & Illustrator

Katy Leigh, Ceramic Artist, Illustrator and active member of the More Than A Mama group has a brand new website to reveal to you all.........not only that but you may very well have spotted one of her pieces in The Observer at the weekend. Well done Katy, such well deserved recognition, we wish you great success with your new site

Katy has very clear memories of obsessively drawing her parent’s Royal Doulton figurines, shortly followed by the characters from her brother’s 2000AD comics, shortly followed by pictures of Nick Kershaw!. 

Her subject matter has changed since but not her love of drawing. After completing a BA and MA in Illustration, Katy was a Picture Editor and Illustrator for various magazines but she has recently found a new love. 

Born in Stoke-on-Trent, “The Potteries” and her drawing has taken her back to her roots. Katy's current work is hand painted onto bisque ware, dip glazed and fired. Every piece is different. Katy is also planning to cast her own bowls and plates so that she can be more experimental with the shapes.

Katy will be at the More Than A Mama Easter Fayre on Friday 26th March at The Town Hall, Berkhamsted High Street, from 9.30am - 12 noon, come along and  grab a Katy Leigh original.
