Catherine Labonte

Catherine Labonte is a glass artist that is inspired by animal behavior and cartoons.

She graduated from "Cegep du Vieux Montreal" receiving both a Fine Art diploma and a Glass Art diploma, 2002.

Since 2002, she has been actively involved in the glass community, creating and exhibiting a variety of original characters in glass.

"Cartoons were always part of my life. As a child I was fascinated by their simplicity and antics. Originally, I began by copying popular cartoons to entertain my friends. Eventually I began creating my own characters, in particular, cats.

"During my studies in fine art, these small characters continued to be my first source of inspiration.

"I could have pursued illustration but I wanted to give three dimensionality to my characters. In order to do this it may have been a more practical choice to use a different medium, but none attracted me more than glass.

"I use glass because of the simple lines, the brightness; it's translucent and colorful nature as well as for the technical challenges. With it I hope to create objects that evoke laughter and wonder in order to lighten the heart."

Purchased product as a gift. [...]. It sounds very cute, but on the small side. I would do it again. I like getting gifts (especially) for out of town friends on line.

        Comments about GLASS CAT & DOG SCULPTURES:

        As the previous reviewer noted, the sculpture received doesn't look like either the cat or dog. I wanted the dog sculpture but received a creature looking more like the cat. It is blue but the ears are cat-like and the eyes and snout lack the whimsical quality of the dog. Uncommon Goods was great about sending another one (thinking I received the cat in error) but the replacement is exactly the same, questionable animal. I would love to have a dog sculpture that looks like the one pictured, but both of these attempts are going back.

            I display it in my living room. It's very cute! I only wish some of the white color glass wasn't around the dog's mouth. It makes the dog have a sort of funny smile.

              Comments about GLASS CAT & DOG SCULPTURES:

              I ordered the blue dog glass sculpture, and the site said that each comes out differently, but I think I ended up with a cross between the dog and the cat. It looks like the cat sculpture with the blue dog body, cat ears, and combo dog and cat head. It's cute, I'll keep it, but....
