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.

[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."
