Katherine Houston is a living artist working in an 18th century technique, adapting the techniques and masterful creations of the past with a 21st century approach to design and technicality. She is one of the few artists in the world carrying on a tradition of hand sculpting hard paste porcelain, decorated with a broad range of color overglazes. She uses only 18th century colors in her work.
