Loves Me, Loves Me Not


This Loves Me, Loves Me Not sculpture was handcrafted by metal sculptor Grace Cathey. Inspired by the flora and fauna of the Southern Appalachians, Grace works out of her home studio, nestled in a 100-acre cove in Waynesville, NC.

Trained first as a fiber artist, Grace spent 15 years as a weaver, but once she picked up a blowtorch and tried welding, she never looked back. Grace started making garden stakes and then worked her way up to animals, twisting vines and flowers in bloom. Born to create, her process involves cutting steel, welding, hammering, grinding, and shaping – no easy task working with such an unyielding material.

Grace has sculptures in the permanent collection at the North Carolina Arboretum in Asheville. She has also exhibited at the United States Botanical Garden in Washington, DC and the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences in Raleigh.
