Katheryn’s first kiln was built brick by brick next to her house in Lake Geneva, WI. She followed a how-to written by Robert Piepenburg on Raku firing. The chance discovery of Raku defined her future path. At University of Wisconsin Whitewater she fired with salt, garbage soaked with salt and delicate porcelain. Her MA at University of Wisconsin Milwaukee was a series of sawdust fired semi-orbs. MFA work was slab drawings on the floor, wall and pedestal using combinations of slips and glazes.
Katheryn’s work is informed by functional ceramic vessels. She has had a career in porcelain dinnerware designed for specific clients and series ordered and sold at American Crafts Council markets as well as seasonal craft fairs. Her figure sculptures are built like hollow jars. She continues glaze exploration and spontaneous brush marks on the surfaces.
This year Katheryn is a resident artist at Lynden Sculpture Garden outside Milwaukee, WI. She will be hand building in the artist barn. The gardens will provide materials for surface texture and discoveries in sawdust firing. She will have a series of one day workshops in pinching and coiling pots that will be blackened and smoked in sawdust firing. All levels of clay experience are welcome to share a pleasant day in the garden. www.lyndensculpturegarden.org
