More of Cathra-Anne's pieces

Cathra-Anne's work in its natural habitat at Tracy Allard & Wayne Balla's Dallas-Ft. Worth home. Mixed Veggies in the first two pictures; on the beautiful table in the third picture is Forest Floor Bowl, which the Ballas picked up at Cottonwood; and Dragonfly and Circus jars in the right photo. What a great touch, placing that Mixed Veggie Jar by the odd colored tile! The tomatoes concur.

Jan Thompson, WA
Porcelain piece by Cathra-Anne Barker from 1977
Scottish Thistle Platter and Basket Weave Seed Jar

The white planter with the fanciful designs (top photo) is one of Cathra-Anne's from 1977! It is made of porcelain, and the glazing technique is completely different from Cathra-Anne's current work. Jan got it at a shop in Washington some years ago and then got the two basket weave / thistle pieces (bottom photo) at the Bellevue Art Museum Show.

Two suites of three of Cathra-Anne's work in Gerald's Houston home. First photo: Gems of the Ocean and Dragonfly vases -- Gerald said: "I am using the stand you gave me. It helps me see the man o’ war a bit better." Second photo, top to bottom: Kimono, Forest Floor and Texas vases.

Mary, TX
Mary has a sizable collection of Cathra-Anne's Forest Floor works
Scottish Thistle Teapot
Cathra-Anne's Spring Basket Vase

Part of Mary's Forest Floor collection (first photo), which began with a Forest Floor Vase she bought at Woodlands Art Festival. She asked if a large, flat companion piece was available. There was just such a thing on Cathra-Anne's bisque shelf, so she glazed a platter for her (not pictured) and fired it in the next load. Also in Mary's collection are Cathra-Anne's Scottish Thistle Teapot (second photo) and Spring Basket Vase (foliage courtesy Mary's sister).

Cathra-Anne's I Love Italy! Jar
Cathra-Anne's work in Mike and Sally's Texas home

Mike and Sally live in Colleyville,TX, and have been collecting Cathra-Anne's work for over 30 years. The piece on the top shelf with the purple tulips draping down from the lid (third picture) is in fact a Cathra-Anne piece from 15 years ago. And there's I Love Italy! Jar in the first picture.

Serious collectors of Cathra-Anne's work for many years. Top row from left: Artigras; Thistle; Poppies (Watson the cat has claimed the bowl in several locations, at times atop bananas); and Lions and Laurel pots. Bottom row: Zinnias in the spotlight; a deluxe collection of Richard’s work in a corner office with grand views.

The tall jar on the right is one of Cathra-Anne's first Forest Floors. It is accompanied by a more recent large Forest Floor plate and Oakwood Gem Jar.

Denise & John McGraw, CA
Cathra-Anne's Big Zinnia Bowl in Denise and John's home in California

John McGraw bought this piece in Scottsdale as a Valentine's gift for his wife, Denise. They live in a Spanish-style home in Southern California, and she thought to put this on a granite countertop. As it turned out, the bowl and the face tiles on the wall look like they were made for each other.


As Denise remarked, "It was meant to be."

Andy wrote the following about Cathra-Anne's two Kimono pieces (second photo) they bought at the 4th Street Festival in Bloomington, IN, in August '08: "We look at them and discover and rediscover little nuances which made the pieces even more enjoyable. We understand the design influence of Japan and Kyoto and the magnificent weaving of the antique silk kimonos. We love your intuitive rendering of the interplay of the lining design with the fabric folds -- Super!" The last two shots are from the Smithsons' Florida home. The Poppies vase and two Sonora pieces are atop a glass table. The devil-may-care mix of patterns is an inspirational contrast to the shared color scheme.

Diane and Pete Kaluszyk, OH
 Cathra-Anne's Dragonfly Jar
Dew Drop Vase by Cathra-Anne
Artigras Vase by Cathra-Anne

Meet the wares of Diane and Pete Kaluszyk, from Columbus, OH. The granite in their newly remodeled kitchen (fourth picture) is a red variety -- unusual and very beautiful.


They bought the big jar you see on the granite counter and the little one at Winterfair and asked Cathra-Anne to make another different one to go in between. That red granite's quite the striking canvas for the plentiful yellow of the Tutu Jar in the middle.

Cathra-Anne's pots have been vying for real estate in Bill and Challa's Wisconsin home for at least 25 years ... they've been enjoying an even longer track record in the home of Bill's wonderful parents, John and Winnie Patchett. Let's just say we have a history!
