ABOUT Katie oakes
With a background in fine art and art history, Katie began studying sculpture at UC Berkeley in 2006. After college, she gained experience as an event planner, line cook and private chef in Venice, CA. During these years she developed her skill set in the kitchen and fell in love with all aspects of curating events. Whether it was the ingredients, decor, plates, bowls or serving platters, each item became a cherished piece of the experience. In 2017, Oakes returned to her sculpture roots and began throwing in her home studio in El Segundo, CA. Her goal is to create one-of-a-kind objects that enhance everyday rituals and bring people together. Each piece is hand thrown and fired in small batches in El Segundo.
