Since the beginning of the Summer I’ve been fortunate enough to spend my Wednesday mornings with designer & maker Catherine Costanza otherwise known as ‘Catherine Rising’. Catherine started up in Brooklyn, NY and later moved Upstate to Rochester, NY – working out of her studio here in the city. She is a talented, verstaile and driven maker who loves organic looking pieces with sometimes a hint of color.
From floral smudge sticks to plant hangers, Catherine’s studio is inviting and always a pleasure to not only work on pieces but to listen to 70’s folk, drink too much seltzer water with and play with her adorable pup, Sunny. Her studio is continuously warm and inviting, with beams of natural light and a lovely view of the railways below. Whether we are taking too many photos or getting covered in glitter – it is a pleasure to start my mornings with this talented woman!
