About

Well, Hello There ...

My name is Kait (she/they), and I am the artist behind Kait Rose Studio. My journey to pottery began in 2014 at a point in life when I needed something more soul-fulfilling. Coping with the intensity of working in mental health while maintaining my own wellness led me back to rediscovering my creative roots. The more I created and connected with people at art shows, the more I began to feel aligned with myself. Pottery became deeply healing and life-altering. Centering clay on the wheel instantly becomes meditative. Sculpting and carving detail pulls my attention to the present moment. I hope my pieces radiate the calming energy I put into them. I want my work to serve as a gentle reminder to be present and always to be kind to yourself

With Love,
-Kait

More about the artist:

Kait was born and raised in the city of Allentown, PA. Kait grew up in an inner-city school and was a lucky recipient of a scholarship to the Baum School of Art while in Elementary school. There, she learned the fundamentals of working with clay and other media. Although she did not pursue art in college, art was always an essential coping skill throughout her youth. Kait graduated from Temple University in Philadelphia, PA, with a bachelor’s in Criminal Justice with an Anthropology minor. 

After graduation, she began sculpting polymer clay jewelry to fill the time between job applications. She continued creating once landing a job working in mental health which helped her decompress from the daily stress. Over time, she saved money, knowing her true calling to pottery and the urge to use raw material from Earth. Kait always found serenity in art and nature. The city girl now resides in the Pocono Mountains, where she continues to draw a spiritual connection and inspiration from Mother Earth.

Kait is always eager to learn more about pottery techniques and safety through books and the wealth of information online. Although her only “formal education” dates back to her elementary school days and two art classes in high-school, she is primarily self-taught. Kait looks forward to saving funds to attend workshops in the future where she can learn more formally. 

Because Kait has faced adversity in youth and young adult life, she is committed to honoring her values through the work of Kait Rose Studio. Kait Rose Studio firmly supports inner-city youth programs, LGBTQIA, BIPOC, mental health awareness, and sustainability. As Kait Rose Studio grows, Kait is committed to giving back to her community. The same community supported her in finding her creative voice as a child, which supported her resiliency.

Handcrafted in the Pocono Mts.
