After a long hiatus from the ceramics Kathy McDonald enjoyed working with as a child, she rediscovered her passion for the media, prompting her to return to school to obtain both a BFA and MFA in ceramics. She works in clay with other media to create highly detailed figurative works.  

Her color palette and finishes are reminiscent of vintage circuses; lively, patterned, detailed, yet washed out, aged, perhaps slightly sad. She favors curious, odd or bizarre elements to create a response.  Fussily costumed, cute, inviting, engaging elements draw one in to then witness the possibly unsettling.  Just uncomfortable enough… .

Project Fusion commison range: Beginning at $500
