Catherine Mountford

Catherine is a British ceramic designer-maker living and working in the South West. After graduating from Central Saint Martins in 2015 with a First Class Honours in Ceramic Design, she has worked with a number of studio potters, ceramic artists and designers whilst developing her own practice.


Catherine is particuarly inspired by fleeting and transitional landscapes and seascapes that she witnesses when visiting her dad who lives on the Lizard. They never appear the same or tire to inspire; thundering grey skies, ephemeral cloud formations, coastal tonal swells, peeking sky blues and rolling hills and cliff faces.

Relishing the opportunities the process of working with clay offers, Catherine predominantly works with plaster moulds and although this is to gain repetition in form, the scope of surface decoration is vast when using stains in the clay body and surface. This provides a unique identity to each piece with the scene on each object developing as the viewer exploresit further.
