What Kate Loves

What Kate Loves is a UK brand of ceramics & stationery designed by Kate Thorburn.


About Kate

Kate Thorburn is a Yorkshire based designer having a background in both ceramic and card design. She successfully completed an MA in ceramic design at Staffordshire University in 2007 and then launched her own range of ceramics ‘What Kate Loves’ in 2014.

In Kate's work there is a strong emphasis on colour, pattern and decorative details. She is a collector of beautiful objects, lovely jugs and plates and images such as old postcards as well as objects she has found like pinecones and shells, which she has found on her travels.

Style & Quality

Launching her range under the name ‘What Kate Loves’, she hoped to create a range that draws on the past traditions and combines this with contemporary trends to develop her own unique style. It is hoped that the beauty and elegance of this collection will have the ‘timeless elegance’ to become the treasured objects of the future.

The elegant artwork is all hand drawn by Kate; she then combines her drawings digitally to create her own unique style. Individual designs are created for each and every product for a very special collection!

100% Handmade

This is a British made range of the highest quality, keeping the heritage alive. All the ceramics are proudly made in Stoke-on-Trent.

All stationery and other product are all manufactured in the UK.
