Kathy Butterly

American ceramist.


American ceramist Kathy Butterly earned a BFA at Moore College of Art in 1986 and an MFA at the University of California, Davis in 1990. Her awards include the Evelyn Shapiro Foundation Grant in 1993, an Empire State Crafts Alliance Grant in 1995, an NYFA Grant in 1999 and the Anonymous Was a Woman Award in 2002.


Butterly makes colourful mixed earthenware and porcelain, small-scale, semi-abstract, whimsical sculpture and sculptural vessels, many with bodily references. Some of her slip-cast and softly folded, twisted and assembled forms are vaguely reminiscent of American master potter George Ohr’s work.
