About KatherineCookeDesign

On Etsy since 2008

I make art

I make art. I cram it in around caring for my family and all the ways that children and life consume your time, but I make art. What I make and how I make it has changed a lot over the years because of life situations, but I can't stop myself for long.

I grew up watching my grandmother needlepoint, and engage in many other decorative arts. After spending many years working in a bronze foundry, I shifted the focus of my own creative expressions from metals to fabric and fibers to fit my life as a mother. I love to created pieces that allow me to engage in a high level of intricate details and yet still be incorporated into a modern busy life.

I have a BFA in sculpture from Rhode Island School of Design, and while I was at RISD I had the distinct joy of being part of the European Honors Program and spent a year in Rome. I worked as a foreman for Lugar Foundry and Gallery in Eads, TN. for 7 years until my first child was born.

For inspiration, I have my children or course, but beyond that I look to nature and the ways other cultures, including Japanese and Chinese traditional artists, capture it. I also love to look at functional craft traditions and the care and intense beauty that is found in objects of use from earlier times.
