Catherine Hunter (Kate) is a contemporary jewellery and object maker who works with
metals, clay, fibres, found objects and gems, in her studio on the edge of a mangrove
estuary in Cairns, Queensland.
Constructing each piece by hand, celebrating the details, Kate’s work draws the viewer
into detailed visual narratives of nature’s struggles and triumphs with an awareness of
global environmental challenges.
“I am attracted to shapes and patterns and love the way nature repeats in a range of
places and scales.”
