Discover the inner lives of ceramic objects!
Kathy creates an eclectic mix of functional pottery and contemporary clay forms. Her works range from large abstract sculptures to coffee mugs and jack-o'-lanterns. Kathy makes plates, pots, planters and piggies, as well as more conceptual works that give her a headache. Lately, she's been creating triptychs and face vases that seem to have inner lives and human qualities. They keep her company during the long hours in the pottery studio.
Kathy fell in love with pottery-making while taking high school art classes as a teenager. She’s been throwing, shaping and firing clay ever since.
After earning arts degrees from Kutztown and Alfred Universities, Kathy joined the Clay Studio in Philadelphia, a leading center for ceramic art. A few years later, she returned to her hometown of Muncy, Pennsylvania, to set up her own art studio. In 1992, she began teaching ceramic art at Lycoming College in Williamsport.
Kathy is a member of The Eagles Mere Art Gallery, a partnership of ten regional artists that features fine art and craft from the Pennsylvania heartland. Her work is also shown at art galleries and shops in the Williamsport area, including Patinaz and the Centered Earth Clay Art Studio.
Kathy hand-crafts her pottery one piece at a time and produces limited quantities. Her new work is available as it comes out of the kiln or by commission. At this time, she does not sell online or accept special orders.
