Katherine Wheeler Ceramics

Katherine is an Australian artist, who works from her home studio in Castlemaine, Victoria. Her work is often found at the Finder’s Keepers, and The Big Design Markets, in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane, as well as selected retail outlets in Australia.
Having a dad who is a potter meant she grew up hand building with clay, and has now combined her artistic background with ceramics, creating detailed hand-built, bespoke jewellery, vessels and planters.
Katherine is known for her ‘coral’ porcelain rings, which are all unique, and one of a kind. Each of her pieces is textures or hand painted with ceramic underglazes, making sure you get a truly original item.
The hand painted designs and editioned Giclee prints reflect the subtle details, colours and patterns in the natural environment, and reflect Katherine’s love of beach combing.
All pieces are one of a kind, made with the utmost care, and with the intention that the right person will find, fit and treasure their chosen item for years to come.
Katherine’s artworks are inspired by nature, the Victorian coastline, and the bushland surrounding Castlemaine. She focuses on picking up the small details in natural found objects, such as leaves, feathers and seaweeds. She then creates abstract artworks, that represent different locations, the light, feeling, textures and details from an area.
