Hey, I'm Katie.

Painted Lady Pottery is a collection of sometimes functional, always nature-inspired ceramic art celebrating the desert palette, evocative colors and shapes, and anything else I'm obsessed with at the moment.

Everything is handmade in small batches in California by me, Katie.

If you are looking for something let me know. I love what I do and am happy to help.

Obsessed with the desert palette.

I started making pottery late in life, just after moving from the grey + rainy Pacific Northwest to sunny + bright Southern California.

So naturally, I became immediately obsessed with the colors + shapes of the desert climate and knew I had to capture their beauty in clay.
