Welcome to Katy Sue Designs, where creativity blossoms!
In 1993, Sue and her mother Doreen turned a kitchen table into a creative outlet that helped them through an extraordinarily difficult time dealing with a serious family injury. With the goal of offering a form of therapy and distraction for Doreen, they began creating miniature porcelain dolls for the Dolls House and Collectors market.
What started as a hobby to help manage the stress of a family health problem, quickly gained popularity, and by the following year, they were casting and making their own porcelain dolls and kits, using a kiln in their garage. The enterprise was named Katy Sue Dolls and the intricate little figures not only provided a distraction during a difficult time, but also captivated a broader audience. It wasn't long before Katy Sue Dolls was supplying collectors in 28 countries.
As you will read here, Katy Sue Designs has always been changing and evolving and by 2004, Sue was ready for a new challenge, so Katy Sue Dolls was sold and all her creative energies was channelled into their next venture Katy Sue Designs Ltd and the amazing world of crafts and edible arts.
