Cathi has taught clay at the University of Victoria since moving to the Island in 2007. She has also taught at Emily Carr College of Art and Industrial Design and the Kootenay School of Art as well as given many hands-on demonstrations at workshops and conferences throughout North America, the UK and Korea.
Cathi’s creation of functional dishes is grounded in her belief that it’s important to have handmade items in our lives to help us remain connected to the natural world and to each other. Most of her work is wheel-thrown and altered into square or triangular shapes. Pieces are decorated with impressions from nature or geometric shapes that attempt to fit the form add texture to the surface.
Cathi has extended her passion for nature into her sculptural pieces. The one of a kind pieces are built up from slabs of clay and their shapes and decorations are inspired by the massive trees and other forest elements that surround us.
**Please note for supplies you’ll need 1/2 box of M370. Firing fees are not included.
