I love cats. I’ve been making cat themed work off and on since the mid 2000s. I’ve also spent years designing hand cut stencils on the computer, dreaming of the day when I could have a machine cut them for me. That day has come.
None of the images I am working from are of actual black cats. I’ve been mining my image assets from the last couple of decades, reimagining past feline companions in silhouette form. I see the black cat as a bold graphic to set against an equally bold glaze palette.
Thirty two of the black cat silhouettes I’ve been working on are represented here. I am continuing to expand the collection with new and more detailed drawings for an upcoming collection of plates.
