Beautiful, fun, and unique -- I paired this lovely bird with the slightly smaller yellow one on the wall of my guest powder room and have gotten many compliments. Cathy was a joy to work with, and my birds arrived quickly and very carefully packaged.

About

Birds, butterflies, flowers, rabbits, owls and animals made with love and imagination

When I first began to work with clay I remember how delightful it felt to create something of beauty out of a lump of mud. I was hooked.

My work is primarily hand built, using terra-cotta or white stoneware clay. Surfaces are painted with a variety of slips and glazes along with sgraffito on the surface.

Clay is a material of contradictions. It is challenging and forgiving, simple and complex, predictable and surprising, primitive and refined. I continue to learn and explore.

My recent works of wall pieces include a menagerie of birds, rabbits, moths, owls and foxes and imaginary animals coupled with botanical themes.

Cathy has completed many projects for public buildings and specializes in hospitals. Her projects include NC Memorial Hospitals, Duke Hospitals, Mayo Clinic, Park Health Services and more. She lives in the woods of Orange County, NC with her husband, artist Mark Brown and their sweet Australian Shepherd, Comet.
