One of Katie Stout’s best-known pieces was also one of her earliest—a side table completed during her sophomore year at RISD that resembled cow udders and spurted milk. Stout’s works continue to be known for their offbeat sense of humor and whimsical sensibilities. She once summarized her practice as an attempt to “make things for this dream dwelling I have in my head, a super-saccharine, cartoony life-size dollhouse where I would ideally live.” Rather than favoring a particular medium, Stout works first with an idea—such as objects that look as though they’re on fire—and then sources materials or fabricators. Her recent projects include furniture for Bjarne Melgaard’s 2014 Whitney Biennial installation, and a collaborative series of hand-pinched clay lamps created with Sean Gerstley.
