Note from Anna…

Cath has explored many techniques and now concentrates mostly on hand-building and scraffito slip decoration. She has always been interested in pattern and colour, and inspired by primitive ceramics, textiles, and decorative folk art.

Cath is now developing new work exploring the interplay between the interior and exterior of larger hand-built vessels. The exterior decorated with organic textures representing nature and the outside physical world. The interior decorated with patterns, colour, and hand-drawn images representing the human spiritual world.
