Cath's mission is to connect with the natural world through the medium of ceramics. After working for over 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 her business Cath Hide Ceramics.


Cath's inspiration is taken from the natural world. For instance, the myriad of autumn shades of beech leaves in sunlight, water glistening on pebbles in a stream, fossilised leaves pressed into rock, climbing plants clinging to stone walls, mushrooms erupting from the forest floor and snails clustering in rockpools on a Scottish beach. All these create amazing shapes and forms and are just some of the diverse forms that have inspired her ceramics.


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