Katherine Mahoney

Inspired by a medium which is expressive & exquisite, fragile & durable, I try, through the ritual & rythm of wheel throwing, to create pieces that are simple, yet beautiful. I use porcelain for its whiteness & ability to make colours sing and stoneware for its robust durability. My latest work is inspired by the colours & textures in Sydney’s landscape. I have designed a versatile range of hand made tableware that reflects the life we lead and would encourage the user to make the pieces unique by the way they use them – then they themselves are the creative.

Katherine Mahoney

Katherine Mahoney’s ceramics are represented in many museums throughout Asia and in private and corporate collections worldwide. She trained as a production thrower in the UK in the mid-1970s, taking an apprenticeship with Keith Harding at Cranbrook Station Pottery.
After managing one of Cranbrook Station’s branch potteries, Katherine and her brother opened their own pottery studio in Kent (Fulling Mill Pottery) and produced a range of domestic ware.
Hong Kong
Katherine then moved to Hong Kong where she was heavily influenced by Asia’s rich history of ceramics. This influence inspired her to start producing single pieces of ceramic which she exhibited very successfully. She started to gain an international reputation and her work was sought worldwide. Katherine’s stoneware and porcelain pieces are glazed nmainly in cool green, blues and stark white, colours influenced by her study of her craft in
Since her move to Australia in 1996, Katherine has continued to create one-off wheel thrown pieces and has also moved into creating more sculptural forms, using a wide range of materials. Being a member, she regularly exhibits with The Sculptors Society, although most of her pieces are sold privately or through galleries.
