Selected Work

18th Annual National K12 Ceramic Exhibiition
3/24/2015 - 3/27/2015
Kathy King
My work centers on the presentation of narrative through ceramic vessels, tile work and printmaking, either separately or combined in installation, with a feminist point of view. I am interested in mapping the ways popular culture not only reflects women’s lives, but also shapes them. It is this influence that demands critical examination. The use of satirical humor, irony and sarcasm often provides a seductive vehicle to approach issues of gender and sexuality within my work. The combination of narrative presented on the surface, united with the intended utility of each vessel, allows a dialogue between the essence of the object and its narrative. Individually, each pot’s narrative may convey a singular thought, but when the work is considered together in a serial format, the story unfolds.
