Catherine (Cat) Arsenault – Potter / Owner of Down Home Pottery
Potter by chance or design or fate? I love the medium of CLAY!
I found my passion about 20+ years ago, when I first put my hands on a lump of wet clay and tried to center it on a pottery wheel to make a “POT”.
I love seeing the look on someone’s face when they pick up a mug and “it fits”, there is great satisfaction in seeing people love the colours and feel of a hand crafted vessel.
I enjoy producing beautiful, functional pieces of pottery, but every now and then, I like to experiment with playful sculptural pieces!
I am an active member of the Prince Edward Island Potter’s Studio and the Prince Edward Island Crafts Council.
I hope you enjoy what you see and find a piece that “fits” you!
