Born in London, England, Karin Burt first found a love for Ceramics whilst studying at New Orleans Center for Creative Arts as a teenager. She returned to London and continued her studies at Chelsea College of Art before gaining degree in Ceramics at Camberwell College of Art, both part of University of the Arts London. 

Her passion for children's issues led her to spend the following years working as a play and community worker in Hackney and surrounding boroughs in London. She then moved back to New Orleans and started a business selling her own pottery as well as teaching both beginners and more experienced artists. Karin loves throwing on the wheel as well as handbuilding and particularly enjoys working with porcelain.
