Made by Katy Jane Handmade Gifts and Crafts

I am a Designer/Maker based in Slaithwaite, Huddersfield. I specialise in Ceramics, however dabble in illustration, print, paper crafts and textiles.

Throughout my crafts and art work, I aim to change the context of found and recycled objects. Whether it is finding a new purpose for unwanted books or creating narratives by using my porcelain figures. Reusing unwanted items not only benefits the environment but breathes life into something that was once destined to be discarded. I intend to capture the beauty that is no longer seen in unused objects. This concept is also what draws me to making with clay as a material. Using a raw and natural material to create something new and beautiful. I aim to celebrate how aged and recycled objects can be revived into something new and innovative.

Throughout my figurative illustrations I am greatly influenced by children’s drawings and how they lack perspective and proportion. They are not realistic images, however, with our symbolic awareness as human beings, we familiarise ourselves with what we see. I believe these imprecisions should be something to be admired.

Alongside exhibiting my art work I am a qualified Art Teacher. I hold workshops and demonstrations across numerous community groups and Art festivals, and looking for more opportunities to deliver classes.
