Caitlin Waugh

Artist + Caitlin Waugh

I was raised in an old farmhouse in Maine, surrounded by plants, tools, animals, community, tumbling rock walls, and a decaying barn full of decades worth of friends’ forgotten belongings. Those aesthetics translate well to the decay and growth of New Orleans; my work is at home here in the Deep South.

I run my restoration and design business, ‘Paraph,’ from my home studio in Uptown New Orleans. My business is dedicated to the rejuvenation of the stained glass trade by using traditional techniques inventively. I am passionate about plant medicine, cooking, gardening, story telling, and social justice. A career in art allows me to live joyfully. Pleasure, brought through inspiration and intellectual challenge, is a priority for me. I strive to share that pleasure with others through my sculpture.

My work is often either narrative or serves as a way to research new subjects. Through treatment of metal, wood, glass, clay and found objects, I explore the aesthetics of decay, vulnerability, and material and textural variation. In all of my work, I strive to blend patience with spontaneous decisions.

Please contact me about preserving wedding flowers (or any plant important to you) in glass, custom orders welcome! See more at and on instagram @caitlinezellwaugh
