Katherine Southam
Cast Glass Artist

I am a Glass Caster from Canada. My work is inspired by patterns of connection between the natural and human worlds. Metaphors and surreal imagery lead to the development of my three-dimensional forms. In my practice I express themes of duality and transformation in a purposefully fluid way, with the use of Gaffer Crystal Glass. I have a BA in Art History from Concordia University in Montreal, Quebec, and a BFA in Glass and Ceramics from the University of Sunderland in the UK. I now work from my studio in Nelson, British Columbia

Details about work or recent projects

My work is inspired by patterns of connection between the natural and human worlds. Metaphors and surreal imagery lead to the development of my three-dimensional forms. Glass lends itself nicely to the representation of themes of duality and transformation, and, in my work, I express these themes in a purposefully fluid way with the use of Gaffer Crystal Glass.
