Cate Watkinson

Cate Watkinson trained in 3-D design, Glass with Ceramics at Sunderland Polytechnic. After leaving college she worked in Cambridge and the Channel Islands before returning to the north east to set up her architectural glass practice in 1988. Cate's designs range from decorative glass panels for private buildings, etched glass screens for offices, to street furniture and major public sculpture commissions. She took up the post of part time Senior Lecturer and Subject Leader in Architectural Glass in 2006 at Sunderland University. Cate carries out both research at the University and commissioned public art work.

Research Interests

With almost twenty years as a practising glass designer Cate has built on her experience gained through working on large scale architectural projects, optimising developments in new technologies, including new developments and techniques in construction. She is interested in developing research around the sustainability agenda and continues to develop her work in a range of different materials. She is now designing architectural pieces in steel, stone and light.
