Who I am and what I do
Hi, I'm Kathy
… and as a folk artist, I’ve been creating with clay for twenty years. Hand built tiles, bowls, and clay mosaics have been my focus. I use stoneware clay and the curda seca technique. In this process wax resist is used to separate areas of color. This style allows me to create tile imagery using glazes in a painterly fashion. Most recently I have begun working with local communities in designing and installing collaborative clay murals. I work as an artist in residence at area schools. With the students, and occasionally other artists, unique mosaic murals are created.
