About the ARtist
Catharine Healy creates fine art ceramics using hand-made and wheel thrown pottery techniques. I have enjoyed making ceramic art using the Japanese Raku firing method. I love the mystery and unpredictability. I have enjoyed exploration with carbon trapping Shino glazes, combining colorful energetic brushwork in wax resist with an Oribe glaze overlay. Most forms are wheel thrown pottery vases with voluminous smooth surfaces that provide a canvas for the colorful brushwork. She has enjoyed landing on a glaze process bringing similar exciting results as Raku work with the added benefit of high fire functional pottery.
