Cathy Moynihan - Ceramic Sculptor
Cathy Moynihan was born and raised in the seaside town of Scituate, MA and now resides in the Boston neighborhood of Jamaica Plain. She has been working in clay since her childhood discovery of the delicious tactile quality of mud found in deep tire tracks in her neighbor’s backyard. Enjoying the timeless techniques of pinch and coil-building she chooses to handbuild in groggy stoneware.
She holds a B.A. of Fine Art from Messiah College and later continued into a ceramic sculpture concentration at the Appalachian Center for Crafts in Tennessee. For the last decade she has been making work at the Harvard University Ceramics Studio in Allston.
Early loves and influences include archaeology, architecture, and spiritual mysteries. Spending many years drawing from life, she enjoys observation and spends hours honing her sculptural forms.
