Catherine's research is formed from a range of sources that are scientific, psychological and art based references that aim to develop a deeper understanding of the importance of ‘making’ as a learning process.
On a personal level Catherine strives to comprehend the materiality of glass. Her work explores the psychology of making and the thought processes used to create.
This research continues to influence Catherine’s teaching as she finds the way that others think, make, learn and process information forms an important part of her study.
Developing ideas through process, and insightful moments through making are all aspects of research that help Catherine to understand the way a ‘maker’ thinks, works, creates and understands the materials they employ.
