Kate Butler is a multi-disciplinary artist based in Brooklyn, NY. Informed by a background in plein-air painting and drawing in the tradition of Cezanne, her work explores experiences of mystery in the visible world.

Her current body of ceramic sculptures are inspired by architecture and growth patterns in nature. As vessels, they balance hiding and revealing form, both reflecting light and concealing space.

Kate earned her MFA in Fine Arts from the Pratt Institute last year, and is currently pursuing an M.S. in Art History, also at Pratt. She is writing her Art History thesis on the ceramic sculptures of emerging 92-year-old artist Stanley Rosen.
