About Suzanne Katkhuda
After studying Life Drawing at Academie Julien in Paris, Suzanne Katkhuda eventually decided to study ceramics at evening classes and started making ceramic necklaces which she sold to Liberty, Fortnum & Mason, Harvey Nichols and Harrods. Her work soon started selling in Europe and the United States. She developed a line of hand painted slipped earthenware plates and tableware, increasing her production from a small studio in Northamptonshire to two factories, one in Stoke on Trent and the other in Northamptonshire, which together employed 35 people.
A huge commission from the Royal Academy to design and make ceramics to accompany their “Fauve” exhibition in 1991 brought follow on commissions from the Royal Opera House and the National Gallery and several prestigious individuals. She was runner-up for Women into Business in 1995 and continued designing ceramics for mass production for several years but has always kept her studio in west London, where she now works on special commissions and where she enjoys making one-off, unusual colourful pieces. All her work is hand painted.
There are five pieces of her work in the Victoria & Albert Museum’s permanent ceramic collection.
