Kate Missett is a ceramic artist in New York City. She creates her pieces by combining wheel throwing and hand building in an assortment of clay bodies. Kate uses a variety of decorative techniques that include ceramic underglazes, silkscreen, laser and paper transfer, China paint and lustre. Maintaining a sense of whimsy, her works focus on the fragility and beauty of nature, and political and environmental issues, while referencing ceramic history.
Kate’s work is currently on exhibition at the Barnstone Gallery in Phoenixville, Pennsylvania.
