Wall Sculptures (3" to 4")


"This selection primarily dates
between 1995 and 1996. Most are
client samples for installations,
and are either unique, or nearly so.

"These were never made directly available
to the public, and there is no significant
reserve supply of them in existence.
I have no plans to produce these in the
future; their like will never appear again."

Luster Pottery by Paul J. Katrich



This website contains a complete visual archive
of the ceramic works by noted Studio Potter
Paul J. Katrich. His pottery is part of
important, public and private collections.

We hope you find the same delight
as was found in creating the pottery.

Internet Archive and History


We have kept this Internet archive since
the earliest existence of the vessels.
Believing Katrich Pottery to have permanent
value and historical resonance, we have
expended substantial resources, both material
and intellectual, to maintain this record.
In so much as possible, it is absolutely complete.

This documentation virtually assures the
authenticity and integrity of all Katrich vessels,
however far they may travel. Our collectors will
always enjoy total access to the true story of
their cherished pottery.

To our knowledge, no other studio pottery,
vintage or modern, can claim so sober and
comprehensive an account of unique work.
In the realm of ceramics, nothing comparable
has been attempted or so long preserved.

We welcome visitation from collectors, students,
scholars and pottery enthusiasts of every stripe.
Katrich Studios, Inc., is the ultimate authority
for the works of Paul J. Katrich.
We hope that you enjoy our efforts.

Fine Art Pottery


The contemporary pottery of Paul J. Katrich
consists of fine, hand-thrown ceramic vessels,
fired with rare colors and treatments,
including in-glaze iridescent lusters.

Each piece is utterly unique
in design and execution:
no repetition is possible.

Flawed or inferior examples are
destroyed: no second-quality Katrich
pottery is ever permitted to enter
the marketplace.

[ Trademark fired onto bottom of 2 vessels ]


Beginning in 2006
his "KATRICH" name was included
below his Registered Trademark

glazed and fired together
onto the bottom of the vessels.

[Registered Trademark of Paul J. Katrich] The Katrich Mark

A Personal Description by the Artist


"A Grecian Sphinx appears on all authentic ceramic works of Paul J. Katrich. The Sphinx is a symbol shrouded in myth and antiquity; revered in many cultures.

"I adopted this signature to demonstrate respect for the artists of the ancient East, whose pottery is a constant source of wonder. For me, the Sphinx is a guardian of arcane knowledge and many mysteries.

"By tradition, the vessel held in her paws denotes life and special insight.

"She has faithfully served Katrich Studios, as a companion and good-luck token, for many years. May she do as much for the possessor."

Paul J. Katrich
