NOTE: Cathy moved her studio to northern Michigan. As one of the Founding Members of The Art Shop and a dependable volunteer, her presence is sorely missed. We continue to exhibit the pottery that she donated when she left, but when it’s gone, it’s gone. Stop by to see if there’s something that you’d like to add to your collection. 100% of all Cathy’s sales go to support the mission of Huron Valley Council for the Arts.
As a young kid, I always enjoyed making things. No matter what – I was intrigued with the materials, shapes, color, tools, or any various aspect that went into a certain project. In college, I knew that metals and jewelry were to be my concentration, but in my senior year I took the required Ceramics class and from there I was hooked.
My teaching career was spent building a college-level pottery program at Lakeland High School, and near the end of my career, I was smitten by the “tile “ bug after taking a week-long tile workshop at Miami of Ohio.
This led to the making of a tile mural at L.H.S. which hangs in the library. Now that I am retired from teaching I continue with clay for my amusement and fun. The learning never ends.
