Artist of the Day: Cathy Terepocki

I can't help but notice that we've had our fair share of busy parent artists on the blog this month, parents who find the time to still make amazing work amidst the chaos of the everyday. And Cathy is no exception. She recently relocated to Saskatchewan and has brought her beautiful work, amazing business sense and passion for the arts with her, invigorating our community. She has a particular sense of design we don't see too much of on the prairies, which is another bonus.

Here's her bio:
"For the last several years the focus of my ceramics practice has been the research of print onto the surface of clay. I have a BFA from the Alberta College of Art and Design. Since graduating in 2004 I have been working primarily as a studio artist (hornofplenty.ca) I have also been teaching workshops and operating a gallery featuring Canadian craft and design. (veryhushhushgallery.com)"
You can find her beautiful pieces here and there at shops, galleries and markets, feel free to contact her through her website to find out if there's a location near you. Or check out one of Canada's newest online art and design shops, Box Social for more of her work. (trust me, it's worth it...I have one of her bird mugs and it quickly became one of my faves!)

Kathy's designs are really interesting. They are tweeked with a very-slightly-nearly-not-noticeable-dark-side.
I like it ... a lot.

Image transfer is on my list of things to integrate onto my work.
Perhaps Sask is the new up and coming art mecca in Canada?
Happy Potting-Parenting everyone
