Patia works with both porcelain and earthenware clays. Her deft lightness of touch on the wheel and the influence of the natural world surrounding her home and workshop brings a contemporary edge to a range of pots which also asserts a deep respect for tradition.
Alongside her colleague Jeremy Steward, Patia teaches on a number of specialist process/skills based short courses. Weight, variety and breadth to these courses are enhanced by Patia’s choice to include a guest potter to teach. A sharing of ideas and development of personal aesthetics are key to her drive and energy with her teaching.
