Cat Burns is a defiant artist who uses dark, sarcastic humor to illustrate her internal narrative. The work explores the delicate strength of glass as a final object, as well as its use as a therapeutic tool.
By spending days meditating through a single piece, each one represents an act of healing. She creates perplexing patterns as a way of communicating and synthesizing the often-manic experience of living with a mental illness. By destigmatizing personal demons, Cat’s work incites her audience to discuss what it means to go a little crazy.
Cat’s work has been shown and sold through the likes of The Corning Museum of Glass, The Princeton Museum of Art, Hudson Beach Glass, and The Arts Council. She has used glass as a conduit for traveling all over the world and enjoys bringing others into the community through teaching!
