About Katy Mitchell

→ Hello! From April 2021 I'm taking a break from making to focus on some professional development projects. Subscribe to my mailing list for first dibs on new slots!

I launched this Patreon page in February 2019 with the intention of investing more time on experimental projects. Patrons’ monthly pledges have empowered me to pick up long-neglected projects and take risks in the studio. I can sit at my desk and know I am being paid to make art. It is magical.

Patreon allows me to explore 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 is a limited edition, and I mail the creations to you, anywhere in the world! These special, investigative pots are kept separate from my everyday collection (which will remain available through my online shop and at events). As a Patron you may well be collecting the very first versions of a new design.



Artists use Patreon in different ways; I use it primarily as a subscription tool to support my creative growth. You pledge a monthly amount, and every 3 months I deliver a piece of art to you, no matter where in the world you are. Pieces are 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 an artist making functional ceramic tableware with my own two hands, intended to be used in daily life. My wheel-thrown forms are illustrated with intricate, vibrant designs inspired by the specificity of my local natural landscape, the landscapes of my heritage and of my daydreams, applied by hand using a mix of techniques in multiple layers. I currently live and work out of Halls Gap, Victoria, Australia after being raised on the Isle of Man in the British Isles.

Goals
$345.60 of $400 per month
A monthly salary of $400 would support three days/week year-round in the studio (without the stress of markets and festivals) - glorious, thank you.
