Cat Burns is a defiant artist who uses flamboyant, sarcastic humor to illustrate her internal narrative. She cultivates her work very slowly and uses it as a visual diary, creating audacious visuals as a way of communicating and synthesizing the often perplexing, manic experience of living with depression.

You may know Cat Burns as a finalist on Blown Away Season 2, a TikTok sensation and maker of the 2020 Unity Pumpkin.
The Shops is proud to partner with artists to develop their work and further their careers in the field. Through these on-site making sessions, artists are provided the opportunity to work with skilled glassblowing assistants, access to state-of-the-art facilities, and receive guidance from our experienced retail team. Throughout the week, they'll have time to develop their product lines and experiment with new ideas. Once their product line is fully developed they are provided the opportunity to offer these products through The Shops.
