Internationally recognized artist, Kay Lynne Sattler recalls having always observed her surroundings as sacred for contemplating and capturing inspiration. The artist has engaged in an exploration of clay and precious metal gilding for more than three decades by bringing ageless elements together to create original works of art. Her days are spent in the high desert of Central Mexico where she gathers pieces of dreams for fusing into reality, while seeking intuitive responses to clay through textural and organic forms found within nature.
Sattler's methodology of clay construction is an intrinsic part of her practice where complex compositions evolve through the tactile and contemplative process of hand building and rolling coils of clay by hand. The sculptures are returned to the earth through smoke firing and brought to life through the brilliance of gilding. Kay Lynne Sattler's art is contemporary, yet primal, exuding a subtle and sensuous elegance.
“My relationship with clay and paint is visceral…
I feel where the materials emanate from, speak from and lead me... as much as I see it.
By keeping the past in mind... remembering life, benefits my creations in the present.
This all combined with the intimacy of creation, and observing how my works seamlessly grow within my presence,
is a process of deliverance for me.”
