After finishing her Ceramic Arts Certificate requirements, Bre Kathman returned to Hood Graduate School to pursue her MA. She has just passed her comps and is excited to be graduating in May 2016. Bre says she chose Hood for her graduate studies because in addition to the art of ceramics, the program enabled her “to learn the science behind how clay worked.”
In September the Iowa native received the 2015 Best Individual Support Award from CCSA (Contemporary Ceramic Studios Association) in recognition of superb support and technical knowledge in clay, glaze, glass and canvas painting. Bre is an education specialist with Chesapeake Ceramics, an international company that supplies bisque and other ceramics supplies to businesses around the world. In her role there, she travels around the country teaching ceramic and glass classes to other companies and also instructs teachers in clay and glass best practices.
