Who is Cat from Blown Away?

Cat Burns is a 30-year-old production blower and studio assistant from New Jersey.

Cat gained two different degrees in Glass Fine Art and in Glass Craft and Design from Salem Community College in Carneys Point, New Jersey. After graduating from college, Cat honed her skills working as an assistant for glass artists in Philadelphia.

These experiences led Cat to become a studio assistant and teacher at East Falls Glass Works in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and The Studio in Corning, New York.

Cat was ready to take on the nine other competitors, despite claiming she had the “least experience” in episode 1. Now, when Cat says “least experience,” she actually means ten years. But, considering Chris Taylor has worked in the field for over three decades, Cat is less experienced than her peers.

In the first episode, Cat impressed the judges with her use of murrine.
