Pottery with personality handcrafted in Chimacum

CHIMACUM, Wash.- Behind K2 Clay is Northwest artist Katie-Rose Fischer-Price.

She believes that our quirks and quirks are what make us human beings into works of art. Sculpting faces and writing stories about them began simply as a form of self-expression – a way to laugh at the absurdity of life.

“I grew up fascinated by faces, they are everything that is how we express ourselves,” she said.

Her handcrafted stoneware is meant to make you smile. While there may be some similarities, Katie will never make the same face twice! The items are all thrown, sculpted, glazed and fired in her home studio based at Kodama Farms in Chimacum.

Katie’s facial works include planters, mugs and cups, shot glasses, fake costumes, and more.

With encouragement and guidance from Todd at Millbrook Clayworks, Katie gradually became confident in her style and technique. And, during the first few months of the 2020 pandemic, she taught herself to throw the wheel. Since then, Katie has absolutely fallen in love with ceramics and the whole making process.

“I am a nurse, and in times of pandemic, it is difficult to work in the medical field,” she explains, “that is when I poured myself into pottery.”

As a nurse, she has grown up in moments of intense emotion and appreciates the whole human experience. She continues to work full-time as a nurse, but nearly all of her free time is spent with clay, pots, cups, and plants.

Katie is incredibly grateful and wants people to smile when they see her artwork.
