Kate Blacklock’s early love of ceramics came from her viewing of the Pre-Columbian pottery at New York’s Museum of Natural History where her mother worked. Blacklock received her BA from the University of California at Santa Cruz and an MFA in ceramics from the Rhode Island School of Design. In her studio art, Blacklock has moved from sculptural ceramics to painting to photography, currently creating illusionary still lifes using a flatbed scanner. She has often worked in series and has shown her work nationally. Blacklock currently is adjunct faculty at RISD; she has taught ceramics at many different venues and was an associate professor of art at Louisiana State University for nine years.
