Gallery Artists

Katherine Mathisen

Katherine Mathisen (Ocoee - Ceramics) was selected as a gallery artist last year. She became a full time artist when she began teaching ceramics to children and adults as a Ceramic Instructor at the City of Orlando's Pottery Studio.

Kathy states that "observing children create with clay has inspired me to freely explore and play with clay. From this 'play' I find paths of creativity that evolve into the unique pieces I produce."

You can see this play in many of her forms including the wiggle pot that was on the CraftArt 2000 t-shirts and her large selection of embellished shoes. Her work can be seen at art shows throughout Florida and in selected galleries, museum and fine gift shops throughout the United States.
