Catherine Butler

For decades, Catherine Butler’s spunky curiosities have been bringing delight to those they adorn and spicing up peoples lives and interactions. A Cleveland native, Butler earned her BFA from the Cleveland Institute of Art in 1981 with a major in Jewelry and Silversmithing. Her work can be found in the collections of the Racine Art Museum in Wisconsin, the Ohio Craft Museum and in the Danner Foundation’s Die Neue Sammlung (one of the foremost collections of contemporary and 20th century jewelry in the world), which is permanently housed in the Pinakothek der Moderne in Munich, Germany. Butler is also the recipient of two Ohio Arts Council Individual Artist Fellowships. In addition to making her work, Catherine has taught classes and workshops at all levels, from children’s classes at the Cleveland Museum of Art to undergraduate students at Edinboro University of Pennsylvania. She currently teaches art at Laurel School in Shaker Heights and has been teaching a free drop in art class for The Sculpture Center at Circle Health Services.
