ABOUT

Cathi’s career began with mentor Herman Venema in 1974. She also completed fine arts courses at Kwantlen College and the Fraser Valley College. Two Canada Council Grants provided funding for a 4-month residency at The Archie Bray Foundation in Montana and the Banff Centre for the Arts as well as residencies in Canada, the US, and internationally. Her exhibition history has been extensive, participating in seven USA exhibitions at NCECA. In 2010, Cathi was awarded the Carter Wosk BC Achievement Award for Applied Art and Design. Among the many publications that have featured her work are Robin Hopper’s ‘Functional Pottery’ and Phil Roger’s ‘Salt-Glaze Ceramics’. Cathi’s studio and gallery on the beautiful Cowichan River near Duncan, BC, is surrounded by the west coast rain forest that inspires her. The unique salt-fired functional stoneware and sculptural forms she creates have designs from nature that she cares about so passionately.

ARTIST STATEMENT

"My work is so influenced by the natural beauty that surrounds me every day. Walking within the west coast rainforest, along the Cowichan River, or gazing at this beauty from my studio fills me with such awe and gratitude! As Thomas Moore once wrote: "Let nature stun you ... and creative energy will flow in to you without any effort on your part".
