Kathy Butterfly shows us that one can always be fresh with a traditional medium. She has a great skill with clay and glazes but packs tremendous sculptural and technical complexity in tiny fiorms with effusive decorative detail.

from working with clay and glazes myself, i can truly respect the technical skill that a ceramicist like butterfly can exhibit. the medium is completely moldable until you lock that kiln door and let the flames do their work. at one point, it's an astounding amount of control and then it's suddenly lost to the fury of chemical reactions. the results are amazing.

This piece reminds me very much of something out of the world of Dr. Seuss.
