Join Catherine White for a one-hour lecture highlighting her creative journey as a ceramicist.

Catherine White weaves together throwing and handbuilding techniques: objects are made with markings and irregularities that intentionally reveal the touch of the hand. She collects and poetically uses diverse raw materials in her anagama and gas-fired kilns, and her clay work is intertwined with extensive drawing, painting, and collaging.

White has an MFA in ceramics, studied painting in Aix-en-Provence, France, and taught ceramics for many years at the Corcoran College of Art + Design in Washington, DC. She’s had commissions for state gifts from President Obama and Michelle Obama as well as yearly commissions since 1982 from Omen-Azen, a Japanese restaurant in New York City. She’s written for “The Studio Potter” and “The Log Book,” examining failure, drawing, materials, and choice, and is represented in both the Renwick and Sackler Galleries of the Smithsonian.

This lecture is offered through VisArts’ Center for Craft Studies. Registration is underwritten by a grant from the Windgate Foundation.
