“Whimsical” is the word usually used to describe Kathryn Blackmun’s carefully hand painted hand built pottery. Colorful cats, dogs, birds, rabbits and other animals predominate…but there’s also Southwest-inspired fantasy landscapes, cowgirls, and robots.
Kathryn was born at the U.S. Navy Base in Trinidad, grew up in the Midwest and was a long-time resident of Los Angeles. She received a BFA in Fine Art at UC Irvine and attended Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. Over a decade ago ago she moved to Santa Fe where she became interested in ceramics and now lives in Albuquerque.
Kathryn’s work is represented in Arizona by Wilde Meyer Galleries. Click on any piece to enlarge it.
