Clay artist Cathy Lawley has lived in
Maleny for most of her life. Where, as
well as raising her four children she
continued to produce her signature pottery
Cathy is predominately self taught and is
best known for her whimsical frogs,
dangling from buckets or hopping on teapots
and taps or aged fence posts. Her recent
series of chooks on ladders known as “Hens
Night Out” are fast becoming another of her delightful collectables.
Cathy is an award winning pottery artist, she creates her beautiful pieces from her stunning sandstone studio situated in the magnificent countryside of Maleny. Her passion and style speak to you through the pieces she creates. The unique way she portrays our AustralianWildlife Characters, using the raku style firing, an ancient japanese form of firing clay with a European flair. Each piece is glazed and is able to live happily inside or out.
Her work has been sold to lovers and collectors, both nationally and
internationally and she is currently represented at Seaview Gallery,
Caloundra, Secrets of the Lake, Montville and Peace of Green Gallery Maleny, a co-operative gallery, where she has been a
member since its conception in 1993.
She is now sharing a lifetime of experience and knowledge with us
through her Fried Mudd web site, her grounded and funny portraits
are now available online.
