About Kat & Roger

We are Kat Hutter and Roger Lee, a collaborative endeavor as partners and artists working in Northeast Los Angeles. We met in graduate school in South Carolina studying painting and ceramics. Our work is really a continuing story of our life as artists, and projects influenced by living in the South, Portland, Lake Tahoe, the Midwest and now L.A. We love the grit, passion, and dedication the Angelenos have for “the creative lifestyle” and feel it is the right place to be for what we are doing. After a lot of research and development we decided it was time to put K&R out into the world. It is a labor of love, combining classic shapes and graphic surface patterns with earthy natural clay textures. We are influenced everyday by the California lifestyle and the vibrant city of L.A, and are always looking for ways to broaden our experiences.
