2021 Holiday Sale Profile – Karina Bates

Karina (Horus Eye Pottery) has been an active potter for over 15 years. Her work is strongly influenced by medieval, and especially middle eastern designs and ornamentation. She also very much enjoys making reproduction pottery for the re-enactment community. In 2016, Karina participated in the Fusion Mentorship program under Michelle Mendlowitz, and in 2018, she travelled to Icheon, Korea with 5 other members of the Guild, to learn techniques from Korean pottery masters. Also in 2018, Karina was accepted into the KPG Juried show at the Peterborough Art Gallery and was honoured to win the Design Award from Angelo di Petta. Karina also teaches three wheel classes at the Guild. You can find Karina’s work in our Pottery Shop and she will also be participating in the 2021 Holiday Sale from December 14 – 23.
