Kat Pino Ceramics
ceramicist | VANCOUVER, BC
Kat (Katherijne) Pino is a ceramic artist from The Netherlands, living in Vancouver since 2016. Kat designs and makes contemporary dinnerware and home goods with a focus on functionality and simplicity.
"I worked as a freelance copywriter and online project manager successfully for nearly a decade, before I tried my hand at pottery. It started as a way to “get out of my head and into my body”, but quickly turned into something that made me happy and steer away from the monotony that had taken over my life.
Early 2016 I ended my freelance career, sold my wheel and kiln, and moved to Vancouver with my husband. With no job or career lined up for me, it was here that I decided to give pottery a go full time.
Aesthetically, I’m inspired by modern design, architecture, industrial design and interiors. What attracts me the most are simple and clean lines, shapes, and materials like glass, concrete, and wood."
