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

Her work weaves together throwing and handbuilding techniques. White collects and poetically uses diverse raw materials in her anagama and gas-fired kilns and her objects are made with markings and irregularities that intentionally reveal the touch of the hand. White’s 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 has had commissions for state gifts from President Obama and Michelle Obama. She is represented in both the Renwick and Sackler Galleries of the Smithsonian. She has had yearly commissions from Omen-Azen since 1982, a Japanese restaurant in New York City. She has written for “The Studio Potter” and “The Log Book” examining failure, drawing, materials and choice.

This lecture is made possible through a grant from the Windgate Foundation to VisArts Center for Crafts.
