“When I design for companies of all sizes I employ the same creative process I use when making one-of-a-kind pieces. I model by hand in stoneware, porcelain or plaster to true scale with actual glazes so that my final studio samples closely resemble factory proto-types.
I enjoy working collaboratively and years of manufacturing experience on several continents have left me familiar with and sensitive to every aspect of industrial production as well as the needs of the client. This, coupled with an understanding of design trend enables me to confidently take a project from idea inception to market placement.“
Kathy Erteman designs and consults for tableware and interiors projects in addition to licensing original designs.
