    Klytie Pate (20 October 1912 – 10 June 2010)
    She married William Arthur Pate.
    "Clytie Winifred Wingfield Sclater (later Klytie Pate) was born in Melbourne in 1912. Her father remarried when she was 13, so Klytie went to live with her aunt, Christian Waller. Christian and her husband Napier Waller [2][3] encouraged her interest in art and printmaking. She spent time at their studio in Ivanhoe, and thus her work reflected Art Deco, Art Nouveau, The Pre Raphaelites, Egyptian art, Greek mythology, and Theosophy. Pate made several plaster masks that were displayed by the Wallers in their home and experimented with linocut, a medium used by Christian in her printmaking. Her aunt further encouraged Klytie by arranging for her to study modelling under Ola Cohn, the Melbourne sculptor.

    In 1931, at the age of 19, Klytie studied painting and drawing at the National Gallery of Victoria Art School under William Beckwith McInnes [4] and Charles Arthur Wheeler.[5] In 1933 Klytie took classes at the School of Applied Art at Melbourne Technical College now known as RMIT University.[6] She studied figure drawing and applied art under her uncle, Napier Waller, modelling under George Allen, and pottery under John Knight and Gladys Kelly. Her environment, her unusual talent, her training, and her drive started Klytie on a path to recognition which increased as time went on. Klytie was also surrounded by the flora and fauna of Australia, and its unique shapes and colours. As a young woman she loved taking trips to the bush, visiting the Mornington Peninsula, and the Dandenongs with groups of friends." (Wikipedia)

    An artist fashioned poems in pottery
    FACT'S Melbourne Correspondent
    Dark-eyed Klytie Sclater, aged 15, idly pressed and squeezed a lump of plasticine into the shape of an Airedale. That was the beginning, 19 years ago, of an unusual art career that will bring to Sydney on Tuesday an exhibition of fine pottery, lyrical in shape, opalescent in texture, each piece fashioned, glazed and fired by Klytie Pate at her home in South Yarra, Melbourne. Klytie's aunt, an artist, looked at the first plasticine dogs her young ward made, noted their vigor and sense of muscle and movement, decided that here was art . She encouraged Klytie in design and modelling, and when she was 19 sent her to study art at the National Gallery School, Melbourne. From there Klytie moved to the Technical College to do stone carving and modelling and, finally, at her aunt's very wise suggestion, to the Pottery School. She mastered the pottery course so rapidly that in a year she was assistant instructor at the school, then instructor.
    Excited critics
    In 10 years of teaching pottery she turned out exquisite exhibition pieces at the rate of nearly 100 a year, sold them readily in the Melbourne galleries. She gave up teaching last year because: She found a home, a teaching job and her own pottery-making too much all at one time. She is married to William Pate, Melbourne commercial artist. She believed she could turn out better work if she could detach herself from the mechanics of teaching and set up her own pottery at home. Her jars, bowls, lamp bases, jugs of sea-pool green, rose-glow, lilac, turquoise, mushroom have excited critics and public alike. At her latest exhibition in Melbourne this month she showed 113 pieces, sold all except four. Wrote the Melbourne Age art critic: "If any of these examples of Klytie Pate's work had been recovered from the earth as a result of archaeological excavation, they would have been praised all over the world. Some of her flambe work is as good as the fine Sung bulb-bowl In the National Gallery." Nervous tension and sleepless nights, uncommon even among artists, go into Klytie Pate's work. For the final firing each piece must remain in the kiln for two days and two nights. The work has been glazed with the colors the artist wants, with all the shadings and fleckings in painstaking detail. But until the moment comes to open the kiln, she can never be sure what the kiln itself may have added to her craftsmanship. Once a blue jar that had been sprayed faintly with tin oxide to give it the life of a flecked piece came out with hundreds of tiny eyes, as beautiful as a peacock feather.
    Her Sydney exhibition of 110 pieces will be opened at the Grosvenor Galleries, George-street, on Tuesday: will last till December 14.

    WOMAN POTTER TO EXHIBIT
    Klytie Pate, a talented woman potter who makes fine pottery at her home in Melbourne, will open an exhibition of her work at John Martin's art gallery on October 6.
    She was Klytie Sclater, aged 15, when she modelled a lump of plasticine into the shape of an Airedale dog-her first attempt at modelling.
    Her aunt, an artist, encouraged her in design and modelling, and finally she went to Melbourne's pottery school. There she became assistant instructor within a year, and finally instructor.
    In 10 years of teaching pottery she turned out exquisite exhibition pieces at the rate of 100 a years, and sold them in the Melbourne galleries.
    Now she has given up teaching to concentrate on keeping house. She is married to William Pate, Melbourne commercial artist. She works in her own pottery, which she has set up at her home. Adelaide will see her jars bowls, lamp bases, and jugs of sea-pool green, rose-glow, lilac, turquoise, and mushroom.
    When the pieces have been glazed with the colors the artist wants, they must remain in the kiln for two days and two nights for the final firing.

    In the same gallery, Mrs. Klytie Pate, a Melbourne pot- ter, has an attractive exhibi- tion of her widely varied and well-designed works — a charm- ing display of graceful forms and harmonious colors. Bowls, vases, jars, plates, beer mugs, ashtrays, fruit sets, coffee services, jugs, centrepieces, and lamp bases are but a few of the many useful forms to which the art- ist has applied her talent. Every piece is beautifully finished in perfectly even or softly graded colors and flaw- less textures.
