Fire meets steel and what emerges can be as simple as an elegant hook for hanging jackets or kitchen pots right through to stylish railings for the garden of your dreams. With full 3D design facilities and access to the latest technology, traditional skills can be deployed to the most exacting requirements. The results will both please and serve for many years. Metal, like good design, endures.

F: Katja's Cakes 

Extraordinary Buttercream Cakes

 

Katja Seaton studied at Camberwell School of Art and then went on to do a 3-year apprenticeship at The Cupcake Café, then based in Hell’s Kitchen, Manhattan. Whilst there she decorated cakes for Oprah Winfrey, Madonna, President Clinton and Jennifer Lopez.

 

“My first cake was for Linda Evangelista, the Cupcake was an exciting place to work, we would think nothing of Susan Sarandon sitting in the tiny café out front having a coffee and cupcake.  Everyone was treated the same, so you would have people like John F Kennedy Junior queueing alongside you waiting for his order”

During her time in New York, Katja also attended art classes at The Art Students League and Columbia University.

Upon returning to the UK, Katja learnt to bake alongside a Michelin starred Chef.

Katja has only recently joined the community at Britannia Yard. And having been working in cake and buttercream for 20 years, as well as teaching art and design. Katja is now doing an MA in textile design at Brighton University, where she is applying her knowledge of piping to a new medium.

Figurative & Abstract, Portraiture & Landscapes

 

I use oils on canvas stretched over custom made frames to give a different foundation to how the overall piece is viewed. Most of my portraiture is double sided to reflected different aspects of the same view.

 

My landscapes are also on custom made frames to support the energy that the subject contains.

Erotic Art in Latex

 

I create individual pieces of art using latex to reflect the intensity of an erotic situation. Using what a person wears as the medium gives an immediacy to what I create. Each work springs from an understanding of the energy involved in the intimacy of the situation.

 

The use of latex links the "scene" as a whole. I am an artist who is able to feel that the very structure of the medium reflects what he wishes to express. As such, the original idea for each work must come from an erotic proposition. A simple whip on its own is not enough. A whip with a woman who knows how to use it is what is required.

 

I can produce an image from my own experiences. They can also come from the experiences of others. Expressed in visual, audio or written media.
