Catherine Hough


Ideas and their development have evolved during my many years of practice, but there are some themes that have been fairly constant. Pebbles, geological strata, birds, fish and plants are a constant source of inspiration. Pieces on these themes include ‘Dancing Bottle’ a winged form in the Crafts Council Collection, and a three part ‘pebble’ structure in the V & A Museum in London.
My recent work is based on large clear hollow forms with more interior space. Through the varied positioning of forms with no fixed base, or the use of multiple forms, I am exploring the reaction of changing light, reflection and the inter-relationship of form and space.
