"Catherine's years spent raising horses shine through
in her close bond and continuing fascination with
their strength and grace. Several of her most significant
works in bronze and ceramic are horses, sometimes
with the additional allusion to her own connection to
them. The person usually appears preternaturally
small in comparison with the beast, accentuating the
concept of human vulnerability." Sam Heller Fine Art
The fun ... in portraying the horse is using...
to invite the viewer to look closer and within.
I am interested in texture and in allowing the clay ...
to express their own language.
I like to make the image float,
an echo of my memories
of the thrilling sensation of riding.
