Cathy Ward: About the artist

Cathy Ward is a clay and ceramic artist based in Burlington, Vermont. In addition to her artistic practice, Ward manages both Burlington City Arts’ Clay Studio and, with her husband Jon Turner, the Green Door Studio in Burlington.

Ward’s nests are part of  “a series about home [that] was born out of my personal need to flee from the confines of my childhood home and create my own sense of home. The values forced on me as a child and the many traditional beliefs of my family is a tall fence to leap.  Through creating this series it has become easier and much more exciting to create my own nesting space.”
