The  M A N I F E S T O  Story

Handcrafted in Glasgow

Working from her garden studio in South Glasgow, Katie Rose Johnston crafts small batch, sculptural ceramics that are influenced by the natural world that she encounters everyday. Fascinated by prehistoric artefacts and the raw, windswept landscape of her birthplace, Shetland, as well as the tactile, ancient process of hand building stoneware clay; every M A N I F E S T O product is a completely unique, functional artwork that aims to bring the rustic beauty of nature into the modern home.



M A N I F E S T O has been featured in the book The Coorie Home by Beth Pearson, Local Heroes: 5 Scottish Ceramics Makers by Dr. Stacey Hunter in The Skinny Magazine, The Face of Art by filmmaker Aglaé Zebrowski and was featured in the exhibition 1000 Vases during Paris Design Week 2020. In 2017, Katie graduated with a First Class Honours degree in Sculpture from The Glasgow School of Art and has exhibited works at The Royal Scottish Academy and the Ingram Collection in London.
