I first fell in love with Cath Price’s ceramics about 4 or 5 years ago when my husband and I bought three of her spiky bowls at David Bellamy’s Cape Francolin Art Hotel in Riebeek Kasteel. I remember David telling us that Cath, who was a student at the time, was going to go on to do great things. And he was absolutely right, besides, who wouldn’t want to have a bunny join you for lunch.
Cath tells us a bit more:
What does a typical work day look like?
Typical day? Hmmm. I tend to make stuff in ‘relays’ for eg. I will spend a couple of weeks casting, then sand (to finish off) and bisque fire for quite a few days and then glaze in a big batch. I have a small kiln so I can only do quite small lots in one go. I work out of my lounge and have a kiln in the garage. In between that is the sieving clay, mixing glaze and general work that goes with making ceramics.
Tell us a bit more about your background.
I have a MFA degree from Michaelis (grad in 2010), I started making ceramics in 3rd year of my undergrad degree and got hooked. I slip cast using porcelain and make all my own moulds.
Where can we buy your ceramics?
My ceramics are for sale in Haas and Fringe on Kloof mostly, a small selection in Imagenius and in Mythology in Kalk Bay, or directly from me (I live in Hout Bay). email@example.com
