What Kate Loves
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.
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.
Kate loves to draw and finds inspiration from everything around her. Walking through meadows in the countryside, picking up some vintage fabrics or simply making doodles. Kate wanted to create her own beautiful range of blue and white that draws on her loves.
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!
