Kate Gatski

Hi! I’m Kate Gatski, one half of Gatski Metal.

Over the years, we’ve built a creative business through trial and error. We’ve learned that we have to balance the making we love with selling and putting ourselves out there. The balance isn’t always easy. But the freedom we find in making our own path is exhilarating.

In this space, I want to share my thoughts and reflections on building our creative enterprise. But I also want to answer your questions and help you pioneer your own creative venture. If you have a question, you can ask it here.

And if you would like more personal help, I am happy to offer a one-on-one consultation. When you sign up, you’ll send me your shop link(s). I will spend two hours reviewing your shop and making recommendations, and send you a detailed written assessment. You can purchase a two-hour review for $100 here. Once you purchase, I will confirm your consultation and let you know when you can expect my reply.

If you have any questions, please do reach out here. I love hearing from you!

    The Creative Agrarian – Cultivating Your Grit

    We were given a creative inheritance. It wasn’t fancy and many times, not too pretty. Nonetheless, here we are. We’re steering a tidy little business making sculpture & furniture with old farm machinery, dreaming of making cheese and writing something you’ll find either useful or entertaining. It feels like an accomplishment- to be here – and to have somewhere to
