Kathleen Skaar has always been an artist at heart, and a home-grown one at that. She enjoys working with fabric and textiles (and even worked in fabric stores for 10 years), and continues to sew, quilt, knit, and crochet. Kathleen spent her early pottery days at Flint Institute of Arts, where she practiced wheel throwing for many years. Today, she is interested in hand-building and the freedom it allows to create any shape, size, and style. In her work, Kathleen explores innovative texture and glazing techniques for unique, functional pieces that others can enjoy in their daily lives.
