Katie Marks Makes Dazzling custom ceramic coffee mugs,
She is the creator and sole employee of Silver Lining Ceramics. “I have always loved clay. it has been my medium of choice since I was a little girl. Even though college wasn’t an option for me I knew that I wanted to learn the art and craft of clay. I took one class as my local community college and I was hooked. I then found a wheel on Craigslist and taught myself how to throw. After a few years of using my studio apartment as a pottery studio I was fortunate enough to land a job with an incredible production potter as his studio assistant. He became my mentor and I have learned everything from glaze chemistry to kiln firing from him.
My work is always growing and changing. Currently I am working on mineral and geology inspired work. I love the play between taking something that they earth does so beautifully and adding my human element to it. I am inspired by my surroundings. I live and work in Seattle Washington”.
