Kat Habib is a ceramics artist and educator whose technique focuses on hand building, figurative casting, and sculpture. Working from her Blue Ridge Mountain home at the foot of the Shenandoah National Park, Kat draws her inspiration from nature, a background in art conservation, and the unique “personalities” of various clay bodies. Kat is currently utilizing a variety of firing methods in her work, ranging from wood, salt, gas reduction and pit, continually seeking a perfect marriage of surface and form for her vessels.

Kat received a BFA in 2009 from the Corcoran College of Art + Design in Washington, D.C. Additionally, she studied art conservation during semesters in Florence, Italy, and at the National Gallery of Art in D.C. Upon graduation, Kat was offered management of the Corcoran College of Art and Design ceramics studio where she served until June, 2013. Now based in Sperryville, Virginia, Kat works full time in her studio, collaborates with other potters as a kiln firing consultant, and offers ceramics workshops. In January 2014, she began a partnership with Coterie, a Sperryville shop focusing on local artists and artisans, where her work can be viewed daily.
