Cathee Boeder and husband, Mark Cook are the creators at PotteryCat.
In addition to an MBA, Cathee’s undergraduate degree is in Fine Art, specifically drawing and painting. In an earlier career, several of her paintings were featured in local publications and exhibitions. She dabbled in pottery during high school and college but it was only after completing a class at The Potter’s Shop in Waukesha, WI when she really put her heart into Clay.
Mark has an associates degree in Food Technology and is a Doctor of Optometry, currently practicing in Lake Country, WI. He is the former Brewmaster of Bent Kettle Brewing and was introduced to pottery as a new creative outlet by his wife. Mark especially enjoys throwing and creating functional pieces of art.
Mark and Cathee have quickly developed a passion for pottery and a seemingly endless flow of ideas. Cathee’s line of “critters” and fish marry her illustration skills with her quirky personality and humor. She is inspired by all living creatures but finds her muse in cats. Mark is inspired by nature and likes to experiment with colors. Mostly, they like to find glazes that make you “OOOH and AHHH”…items you find pleasing to hold and look at!
They reside in Southeastern Wisconsin with their beloved KittyKate.
