Beauty in Everyday Life: Glasswork by Catherine Hart

Inspired by nature and the beauty in everyday life, Catherine Hart creates one-of-a-kind stained glass panels. Catherine’s style often features floral motifs against backdrops of geometric abstraction and patterns.

The medium of stained glass lends itself well to geometric patterns, and I rather enjoy the way that Catherine utilizes this strength. Many of her works – particularly in her Geometric gallery – strongly feature checkered or striped patterns of colored squares and rectangles inlaid with clear or frosted glass. In other works, geometry is used as a starting point, with more rounded, floral forms becoming the focal points.

Catherine also uses her glasswork skills to create christmas ornaments. These small, flat pieces of glass and wire have an ethereal beauty to them, and I can imagine the translucent colored glass doing a great job of diffusing bright holiday lighting throughout a space. Each piece showcases skilled craftsmanship and an eye for simple, clean aesthetics.
