Catharine H. Brown

Asheville, NC

Exhibiting Member Since 1976

It was only recently that Catharine began combining the elements of clay and glass. “Basically, I love the two media because they both allow for an expression in three dimensions. The clay shows subtle shadows and picks up fine textures. The glass is such a luscious contrast with its light holding properties.” She explains, “The stone-like ceramic ‘bodies’ suggest our intrinsic connection to the earth, and the translucent cast glass faces refer to the animating spirit within all beings/matter.” Catharine’s clay-and-glass sculptures arose, she says, from a desire to add another dimension to the landscape. “My lifelong passion of gardening led me to create a stroll garden on our half acre... As the garden matured, I saw wonderful settings for sculpture. Although this work can be naturally displayed in interiors, it is intended for garden settings as well.
