Cathie Cantara - Ceramics

Cathie Cantara of Kennebunkport, ME is a full time studio potter, specializing in high-fired functional stoneware, as well as raku and smoke-fired art pottery.

Cathie's parents met in art school and she grew up in an environment that nurtured and encouraged creativity. It was while taking a pottery class her senior year of high school that her parents purchased a potters wheel for her and a seed was planted. Throughout her adult life Cathie has always followed artistic pursuits, which included working in a stained glass studio, and following her love of oil painting.

In 2000, Cathie returned to clay with a renewed passion and began her self-directed exploration of the medium. This culminated in her opening the doors to Homeport Pottery Studio in 2005. Since then she has participated in group shows with Southern Maine Clay Guild and has been juried into national exhibits and numerous fine craft shows throughout New England.

Cathie states: "I have a fundamental belief that the world around us is enhanced by instilling beauty into the functional objects that people use on a daily basis. My work is influenced by the beautiful landscape that surrounds my studio. The rugged seacoast, the woods behind my house, the sky & earth all play a part in the shapes and colors I use in my pieces."
