Recent Work

Kate Butler is a writer and artist working primarily in drawing and ceramic clay. Her sculptures describe subliminal experiences of space through forms that feel alive and vaguely human.

In 2019, she earned an MFA Fine Arts and MS Art History from the Pratt Institute, pursuing both a rigorous studio practice and original research on ceramic sculptor Stanley Rosen. Before attending Pratt, Kate studied and apprenticed at the Marchutz School of Fine Arts, a “school of vision,” based in Aix-en-Provence, France, that integrated the study of plein-air painting with seminars in art criticism. Since graduating from Pratt, Kate has participated in residencies at Odyssey Clayworks and Anderson Ranch Arts Center. She currently works out of Wedge Ceramics and teaches at Brooklyn Clay Industries and Clayhouse Brooklyn.
