Autumnal Colours - Leafless Bitter Pea

ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Cathy Franzi is a ceramic artist working and living in Canberra, and a recent PhD graduate in the Ceramics workshop at the School of Art & Design at the Australian National University. Through her work she investigates ways in which representations of Australian flora on the ceramic vessel can express current botanical and environmental knowledge. She holds a Bachelor of Science from the University of Sydney and this background informs the scientific approach she take to my art practice.
Her work aims to reflect the textural and formal qualities of plants and refer in some way to the connections between them, ecosystems they inhabit, and attributed cultural values. Cathy researches an environment and its flora primarily through fieldwork, supported by data searches and her engagement with botanical research centres such as the Australian National Herbarium and the National Seedbank. Her studio exploration of material, form, technique and placement embodies this knowledge.
