Katie Szarek has been working with clay since 2016, when she took her first hand building class in high school. She grew up always creating in some way or another, and when she stumbled upon clay she fell in love with the medium and its creative freedoms. Katie took many more classes throughout her time in high school and her first wheel throwing courses were at the Vernon Community Arts Center. She continued on to attend the Ceramics Program at Kootenay School of the Arts in Nelson, BC.
Katie now enjoys both wheel throwing and hand building with clay and has fun creating functional and decorative pieces. From mugs to miniature houses, her work often has a playful and whimsical look, usually accompanied by some bright colours and repeating or abstract patterns.
