Katja Kromann

I make functional and decorative handmade ceramics.

I live and design by these eight words:

Aesthetics Function Scale Texture Color Balance Message Flow

These days I call Seattle in Washington home, but I am originally from Denmark and moved to America in 2000. My Scandinavian roots strongly influence my design style. I have made many types of handmade design in my life and since 2018, I have been making ceramics.

I primarily focus on shape and texture when it comes to design. I spend quite a bit of time developing strong forms with clean lines. I think there is a certain quiet honesty to be found here, which I further accentuate with my calm color palette.

I work with stoneware clay, mostly on the wheel. My work is often a mixture of wheel-thrown pieces with a hand-built element to them, such as the attachment of a foot or a handle, stenciling, carving or hand painting a pattern.

By request, I teach hand-building workshops and wheel instruction to both new and seasoned ceramicists. Lighting someone up by helping them achieve new skills fuels my soul.

Here is an even longer version of all things me on my katjakromann.com portfolio.

My studio

I work out of my homebased ceramic studio just south of Seattle.

Once you see it, you can't un-see it. amirite?
