Katy McNamara

Katy started wheel-throwing in January of 2021 after being fascinated by pottery for years. In search of a creative outlet while working remotely during the pandemic, she signed up for a pottery class in her hometown of Chapel Hill, NC and fell in love with making functional objects. Katy moved to brookline and joined Feet of Clay in September 2021 as an intern. She now teaches the Friday night wheel and clay sampler classes for folks just starting to getting their hands dirty with clay. Katy’s primary fascination is with mugs, especially those with funky handles and bright colors. She is branching out into plates, bowls, and lighting experiments as she continues to develop her creative voice.
