ARTIST BIOGRAPHY

Internationally recognized artist Kay Lynne Sattler recalls having always observed her surroundings as sacred for contemplating and capturing inspiration. This life experience continues to span over four decades while the artist engages in an exploration of materials that bring ageless elements together to create original works of art. 

Sattler's
 techniques are a sophisticated balance of hand building and pit firing clay. The primitive firing results in spontaneous patterns left behind on the vessels, like flowing garments on dancing bodies. Her signature has become the ability to meticulously gild precious metals to live in a serene sanctuary on the body of clay or canvas. The collaboration is contemporary, yet primitive; exuding a subtle and sensuous elegance. To the surprise of the viewer, each piece glows in the faintest of light, recasting the role of original art in today's collections. Praised by critics and prized by collectors, one can not help but be drawn into the primal, pure and precise way in which Kay Lynne Sattler's artistry evokes the elemental essence of creation.  

 

ARTIST STATEMENT

"My passion for placing leaves of precious metal on an existence of hardened clay or painted canvas, ultimately imparts the visual response to complete the work. In reaching beyond traditional art; it is my hope that I have successfully embraced innovation and tradition by juxtaposing precious metals with clay or paint to forge original works of art of depth and beauty."
