Mary’s Contemporary Creations came about after almost 30 years in the corporate world and the desire to turn a hobby into a business.
“After years of trying just about every craft and hobby known to man – I found Glass – Fused Glass – I love the texture, feel and fluidity of glass – I have finally found a medium for my creative expression.” – Mary Cathryn Catherman
Mary started her learning process with a beginner’s glass class at More Fire Studio in Rochester. She continued with trial and error after purchasing her 1st kiln in 2006 and has attended the Glass Craft Expo in Las Vegas, taking classes from some of the great glass artists in the field; Lisa Vogt, Patty Gray and Christine Stewart to name a few.
The basement studio in Cape Vincent has expanded (taken over more like it) containing several kilns, grinders, cutting tools and glass just waiting to be transformed into art.
Mary Cathryn Catherman lives with her husband Terry between Rochester and Cape Vincent NY.
