Kait Rhoads

Kait received her BFA from Rhode Island School of Design in 1993, her MFA from Alfred University in 2001 and a Fulbright grant to study sculpture in Murano, Italy in 2001. She uses traditional Italian techniques as a base to create sculpture and vessels. Her collections include the Seattle Art Museum, Carnegie Museum of Art, the Corning Museum of Glass, the Museum of Northwest Art, LaConner, WA and the Palm Springs Art Museum. She has been an instructor at Haystack Mt. School of Crafts, Pilchuck Glass School, Penland School of Crafts, Scuola del Vetro Abate Zanetti and Ox Bow.

Kait Rhoads' "Sea Stones" are built upon the artist's fascination with corals, ridged and pliable, which exist in endless variation, yet their common basic building blocks are hexagonal tubes made of calcium carbonate; the work depicts extreme repetition of body movement via small individual parts linked together, much like atoms or matter at play.
