Caitlin is a Scottish artist designer maker and graduated from The Glasgow School of Art with First Class Honours in 2018.

Caitlin's work explores material value which is underpinned by research of the rich and contradicting history of the colour blue.  This research invites exploration of heritage, hierarchies and binaries through relationships and tensions of material textures, weights and finishes.  The work simultaneously references but also subverts ancient aesthetics and traditional processes, employing techniques that carry rhythms throughout a varied material palette.

Caitlin says; "I visualise myself as a gatherer, collector and researcher of information and materials; I balance contemporary and historical research with influences of the everyday and Scottish heritage".
