Karin Ort

Karin Ort is the cofounder of the Phoenix Studio.

Always creative from a young age, Karin discovered clay modelling in 1995 when she started doing weekend courses with Mary Orrom at Great Missenden. She then studied for a part time National Diploma in ceramics and surface pattern at Barnfield College followed by starting an HNC in 3-dimensional design.

In 2004 she started running sculpture workshops at Peter Jones’ Phoenix Studio. These sessions proved to be popular and years later she has introduced many people to the delights of modelling in clay.

Karin has an exceptional eye for detail and is able to guide and encourage students through to reaching their creative potential. When not teaching at the studio, Karin produces her own work and sells it at exhibitions and through commissions.
