Caz was born in London and still lives in the city. She studied Graphic Design at Brighton University (BA) and the Royal College of Art (MA). She began her career designing books at publishers Penguin and Random House, then worked as a graphic designer and creative director, designing books, brands, and packaging. She has also created her own books on various subjects including pasta, the history of ornament and punctuation.
After a career designing to order, Caz has chosen to work as an artist, making objects in three dimensions that resonate with her preoccupations with architecture, archaeology and memory. She feels liberated by the opportunity to explore these concerns through experimentation with materials to give form to her thinking through making.
She says “I’m dazzled by the chameleon-like qualities of clay. It can be anything you want it to be.”
