Katy Mitchell is creating pots + illustrations
15
patrons
$240
per month
Hello! I've launched this Patreon page with the intention of investing more time on experimental projects, exploring pattern and illustration with more labour-intensive techniques such as screen-printing, mishima inlay, and digital decals, combined with hand-painting. Each batch of pots will be a limited edition, and I'll mail the creations to you, anywhere in the world! These special, investigative pots will be kept separate from my everyday collection (which will remain available through my online shop and at markets) though the best results may well bleed into the rest of my practice, as my designs tend to evolve at a gradual pace. I'll also be releasing my developmental illustrations on paper for the first time - you may well be collecting the very first versions of a new design. Cool, huh?



Artists use Patreon in different manners; I will use it primarily as a subscription tool to support my creative growth. You pledge a monthly amount, and every 3 months I will deliver a piece of art to you, no matter where in the world you are. Pieces will be randomly selected for each Patron; unpacking your quarterly delivery will be a delightful surprise.



Are you new to my work? Hi! My name is Katy. I'm a potter. I make functional ceramic tableware with my own two hands - mugs, bowls, plates - intended to be used in daily life. My wheel-thrown forms are illustrated with delicate and colourful designs inspired by the beauty (and oddity) of the environment in which I find myself. Over the last nine years I've been fortunate to make and sell my work whilst bouncing between my island home (the Isle of Man) and my adopted homeland (Australia). As of March 2018, I am based in Halls Gap, Victoria, Australia.

Tiers
The Archivist.
$5 or more per month only 17 left
 → A work on paper, posted to you every three months

→ approx. A5 sized, signed + dated. I develop ideas on paper before moving onto clay; you would be collecting my designs in their inception!

→ Worldwide delivery! 

The Miniaturist.
$9 or more per month only 8 left
→ A hanging decoration, posted to you every three months

→ These palm-sized, flat pieces of clay are excellent test-tiles that allow me to try out a new technique or illustration on clay for the first time

→ Good for hanging in a window, wearing as a big pendant or saving for the Christmas tree!

→ Worldwide delivery!

The Cup Fiend.
$19 or more per month (sold out!)

→  A wine cup, posted to you every three months

→  Formed on the potter's wheel and individually hand-decorated, wine cups are the perfect size for your favourite tipple - wine not obligatory! A lovely clear glaze gives each cup a beautiful smooth and tactile finish - they are a delight to hold in your hand. (height: 8 cm x width: 8 cm approx.)

→ Worldwide delivery! 

The Collector.
$29 or more per month (sold out!)

→ Build a set: receive a different item every three months - one wine cup, one bowl, one side plate and one mug in the first 12 months, then let's chat!

→ Also! I'll include a decoration in each delivery - good for hanging in a window, wearing as a big pendant or saving for the Christmas tree!

→ Keep them for yourself or gift them to friends. All formed on the potter's wheel and individually hand-decorated, these pots are finished with a lovely clear glaze giving each one a tactile finish.

→ Worldwide delivery!
