Catherine Labonte

Catherine Labonté graduated from “Cégep du Vieux Montréal” receiving both a Fine Art diploma, 2001, and a Glass Art diploma (Espace Verre) in 2002.

During her school years, she developed many different techniques as glass blowing, cast glass, sculpture, engraving glass, lost wax image transfer and kiln forming. She was deeply inspired by her childhood from cartoons. Always kind of “funny” the characters, that she creates, are a technical challenge.

In 2008 Catherine Labonté received Montréal’s François-Houdé award, after being a finalist for 4 years. She also received a Niche Award 2007 in the USA.

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