Course Coordinator:

Cathy Franzi

Ceramic Artist | Canberra ACT

"I investigate ways in which representations of Australian flora on ceramic vessels can communicate ideas about the current environment. My initial training was in science, informing the botanical approach I take to my subject. However, it is the love of being in nature that gives me a passion for making – to find ways to express the character of each unique plant and the diversity, and fragility, of environments they inhabit."
