Cecilia Cote is a potter, stone carver, and sculptor well known for her functional pottery, as well as her organic abstractions in plaster and carved stone.

She was also a founding member of the Saskatchewan Craft Council and has served on several art-related Boards, including The Saskatchewan Craft Council; University of Saskatchewan Extension Department; Saskatoon City Hall Art Advisory Board; and the Saskatoon Foundation.

She holds a B.Ed in art education and a B.A. in studio art. She later completed the University of Saskatchewan Certificate of Art and Design program in 2014, focusing on sculpture. Her carved stone works have won numerous awards, including First Place finishes in the Saskatchewan Wildlife Art Association juried show in Saskatoon, and the Desert Woodcarvers Show and Sale in Mesa, AZ. She has been a juried member of the Saskatchewan Craft Council in Functional Pottery and Sculpture since 2013 and has sponsored the Dimensions Exhibition award for the Best in Functional and Production Ware since 2003.
