After studying Life Drawing at the`Academie Julien in Paris, Suzanne Katkhuda eventually decided to study ceramics at evening classes and started making ceramic necklaces which she sold to Liberty, Fortnum & Mason, Harvey Nichols and Harrods which soon began selling in Europe and the States. This led her to make hand painted slipped earthenware plates and tableware which she began in a small studio in Northamptonshire and ended up with two factories in Stoke on Trent and Northamptonshire employing 35 people.
She had a huge commission from the Royal Academy to design and make ceramics to accompany their "Fauve" exhibition in 1991. This led to commissions from the National Gallery for the Degas exhibition in l996 and other commissions from the Royal Opera House and several prestigious private individuals. She was runner up for Women into Business in l995 and continued designing ceramics for several years but has always kept her Studio in West London where she works on special commissions today and enjoys making one off unusual colourful pieces, all her work is handpainted.
There are 5 pieces of her work in the Victoria & Albert Museum's permanent ceramic collection.
