Karacotta Ceramics

Made in Austin, Texas

Karacotta Ceramics are foremost designed with functionality in mind; each piece is handmade to achieve a simple, modern, organic aesthetic. This unique process, where each piece is individually worked with at least ten times, takes place over many days. It ensures no two pieces are created exactly the same with slight variations in shape, size and glaze. Karacotta values craftsmanship over production quantity and even scratch-make their own tools, clay-bodies, and glazes as part of their dedication to the process.

Kara Pendl is the designer, artist and creative director behind Karacotta Ceramics. Kara is a {mostly} self taught potter with early instruction from a high school art class, a hobby exploration in 2011, and a lifetime of creative curiosity. Originally a Wisconsin native, Kara grew up exploring in the woods, adventuring in nature, and creating with organic materials – these experiences heavily influence the unique aesthetic and processes in the body of her work.

When she’s not blissfully covered in mud, you can find her out-and-about Austin, practicing handstands, reading in the sun, drinking coffee and chatting goals & strategy with other female entrepreneurs.
