Cathy Lombard – Potter, Ceramic Artist, Sculptor
My style reflects an admiration for Canadian potters Robin Hopper and Kayo O’Young, as well as Navajo artist Maria Martinez.
About the Artist
I’m a Toronto native with a varied background in the fine arts. I spent the academic part of my artistic career at the Ontario College of Art, where I graduated in design, and the University of Guelph, where I obtained a Bachelors Degree majoring in Fine Art. As well as ceramics, my early work was in metal, where I worked as a sculptor and on commissioned pieces.
I have returned to traditional wheel thrown ceramics, drawn to the technical discipline, creativity and stillness the work entails. I enjoy the potential of marrying commodity with delight and the tactile pleasure of drawing, tooling and working with clay and unpredictable glazes.
