Chatham Pottery
Catherine Gillespie feels that the art is meant to be used and handled, therefore she creates very thin pottery pieces that are comfortable and enjoyable to use as well as view. She primarily produces fine hand-thrown stoneware with vibrant colors and themes from nature. Each pot is individually made; no two are exactly the same. She also makes tiles that can compliment her popular custom-made vessel basins.

Catherine is a graduate of Tufts University with a BS in occupational therapy. Additionally, she attended Boston Fine Arts Museum School for ceramics and fine arts. She has run Chatham Pottery for more than 30 years.

In 2000, when she moved to Buffalo she was struck with the strong and vibrant arts community in the region. It became her goal to help people who live in the region realize the depth and quality of the arts talents here. She is instrumental in the publishing of the Buffalo Niagara Artist and Gallery Guide which Artists in Buffalo, Inc. produces, and is a primary organizer for the Holiday Open Studios and Galleries.  Mayor Byron Brown appointed Catherine chair of the Buffalo Arts Commission in 2010.

Catherine enjoys the challenge of commission pieces. It helps stretch designs and ideas which then often develop into a pattern she can incorporate into her ever growing repertoire.
