Biography

Cath's mission is to connect with the natural world through the medium of ceramics. After working for 25 years as a biologist she has encountered many interesting and surprising natural forms which have influenced her work.
Her vision is to use these ideas to develop Cath Hide Ceramics.

inspiration

Cath's inspiration is taken from the natural world. For instance, water clinging to pebbles in a stream, snails clustering in pools of water, fossilised leaves pressed into rock and mushrooms erupting from decaying life. All these create striking shapes and forms and are just some of the diverse forms that have inspired her ceramics.

medium

Cath creates ceramic forms using both stoneware and earthenware clays and glazes. She uses handbuilding and throwing techniques to achieve a wide range of effects, creating mainly functional forms for the house and garden.
