About | Nadia

Always searching for the bare bone truth, Nadia Caterina explores the wilds, collecting inspiration as she travels. Most of her collection walks are initiated with a call from nature and mediation.

Nadia is fascinated by ecological life cycles; seed, birth, blossom, decomposition, and re-birth. Her work displays nature’s stories of this cycle and the delicate balance between life and renewal. She hopes that these simple yet beautiful shapes of the natural world around us will encourage others to slow down and see the beauty that is at our feet.

Using bones, flowers, natural textiles and even some ceramic work, Nadia explores nature’s beauty in her art. Her work began with balancing bones and feathers from hanging mobiles. Making dozens of these teetering ecological homages at her woodland cottage. She met her now-husband, a figurative sculptor, who was the first to use the word “art” towards her work. Since that day Nadia has shown her work in gallery exhibitions in Thomas, Fayetteville, and Morgantown.

Her work has evolved into ceramics, where she is now sculpting her own bones, mushrooms, flowers, and even using pressed flora and fauna in her works. She continues to make mobiles and integrate natural fibers into her work where she can.

While she grows in her love for clay, she is also pursuing wool processing and using these local farm fibers in her work.
