About catherinecarrglass

Winner of three major awards at her degree show, Catherine Carr is an Independent Craft Designer specialising in glass and textiles. She lives in the market town of Glossop in the High Peak District. Her work reflects the use of fibre arts, particularly knitting and crochet. She has developed traditional textile processes such as knitting and crochet to create an innovative range of sculptured vessels in glass. Each piece has been individually knitted or crocheted by hand. They are then heated and manipulated through several firings at a very high temperature, eventually emerging as a formed glass vessel. Because of this hand crafted process, all pieces are original and individual with no two being exactly the same. By applying these traditional skills to an innovative process of recycled glass products she produces beautiful and delicate lace structures in which each individual stitch can be seen and the openwork design casts striking dappled shadows. Inspired by the role of women in textiles, especially her Grandmother who taught her these fading skills and bequeathed her the patterns used, she hopes to celebrate the history, memories and skills of women workers in the textile mills of Northern England.
