Sculptor Kathy Butterly thinks of herself as a painter “who happens to work with clay, three-dimensionally.” She is known for abstract ceramic vessels ranging in size from small to nearly five feet tall, whose twisting forms with pinched openings resemble “shrunken hybrids of alien life forms and domestic objects from which something is oozing, leaking, or dipping,” as described by critic John Yau. Evoking the crumpled ceramics of George Ohr, these playful sculptures begin as symmetrical cups or vases, which she prods into a unique biomorphic shapes. Butterly considers some pieces to be self portraits—Fall into Spring (2004) for example, expresses how she, a downtown New Yorker, felt after September 11th—while others engage the quotidian, inspired by baking, flea markets, cartoon and horror film effects, and the like.
