Artists At The Withrow Park Farmers’ Market – Saturday, September 13th, 9am-1pm – Event
Participating in the Art Market this Saturday :
Catherine Thomas : The Woodlot
Catherine Thomas is a multimedia artist working with clay and reclaimed wood. Her vessel forms include both abstract and functional work, flower vases, drinking cups and bowls and small containers for cherished objects. She also makes reclaimed and found object birdhouses and wood sculptures. Catherine fires her work in a cross draft wood kiln outside of Toronto
“I have worked and played with clay for many years now. I studied in Montreal, the Eastern Townships and Toronto. I have fired with gas and electricity and have experimented with saggar and raku firing. However, functional pottery is really what I am all about. I am inspired when I hear that someone used my goblets for their wedding ceremony, or when they tell me that they start off each day reaching for their favourite mug – the one that guarantees that the day will go well, or when someone bakes apples, from the Heath orchard, of course, in one of the my baking dishes. It is very exciting. This is what clay is all about, it has been for ever and continues to be so for me”. Website : Lynn Heath
