Since graduating from Alberta College and design in 2004, Cathy Terepocki has been developing her career as a ceramic artist. She currently has several lines of functional dishes and jewellery that layer contemporary methods of hand painting and printmaking on top of clean and modern hand-thrown and hand-built forms. This work is sold at shops and galleries throughout Canada and the United States, and has been featured in books, blogs, magazines and newspapers, including Galleries West, Western Living, Uppercase, the Globe and Mail and Canadian House and Home.
In 2016 she was awarded Designer of the Year in the Maker category by
Western Living Magazine. In conjunction with production practice, Cathy has had the opportunity to do some product design. In Spring 2018, several collections of her designs will be launched in Anthropologie stores across North America.
Cathy has also been developing a portfolio of one-of-a-kind art pieces and conceptual ceramic projects for which several grants have been awarded. In 2007, she co-founded a mobile gallery showcasing the work of Canadian artists and designers.
Cathy has had the opportunity to share the joys of working with clay and has taught ceramic printing classes at art centres and post-secondary institutions as well as clay classes for kids and adults in her community.
After a four-year stint on the prairies, she has returned to beautiful British Columbia and is living in Yarrow with her husband and 3 children.
