Instructor: Kat Ferguson
Kat Ferguson is a local potter who creates functional art pieces that are used in everyday life. Making pottery is where she is able to find her focus and peace within. Inspiration often comes from gardening and nature, architectural history, and, of course, her kids! Kat moved here after graduating from Virginia Tech to enter into the Cub Creek Foundation. At Cub Creek, she found a love for wood firing, surface decorating, and new glazing techniques, some of which she still uses on her pots today. Kat started teaching at the Academy in 2009 but took a long break to raise her kids. She is very excited to be back teaching again!
