 Katherine Somelofski is a versatile craft artist living in the Catskill Mountains of Central New York State.  She is a native North Carolinian from the mountains of Southern Appalachia where she grew up surrounded by a rich heritage of fine crafts which she explored extensively. Nature, and mountains in particular, have always provided a special inspiration for her, especially in her creative endeavors.

Katherine’s current work focuses on designing and crafting stained glass pieces and producing beeswax candles.  Many of Katherine’s original designs incorporate the shapes of landscapes and natural elements.   Katherine’s candles are featured as a “Pure Catskill” product because she partners with local beekeepers for the wax for her natural beeswax candles. Over the years, Katherine has also worked in fiber arts, ceramics, beaded jewelry and photography and she frequently incorporates aspects of other media into her current work.
Katherine is a member of The Artisans’s Guild and her work can be found at their store on Main Street, Oneonta, NY. Her work can also be found at the Catskill Mountain Artisans Guild store in Margaretville, NY. She also sells through Catskill Region festivals/events, markets and shops including the Emerson Resort in Mt. Tremper, NY and her website: http://www.catskillmountaincrafts.com/ .
