Kerry Kittrell is known for her sacred cauldrons of transformation and other artworks honoring Gaia and the Great Mother. She received her BFA in Sculpture from San Jose State University in 1999 and moved back to Austin. Kerry's deep curiosity of different cultures and cosmologies continued with immersion into Celtic spiritual traditions, Old Norse cosmology, and shamanism. Pilgrimages to sacred sites in France, England, Crete, and the Pacific Northwest deepened her spiritual callings. These influences are woven into her sacred vessels, assemblages, abstract paintings, and other art treasures. Her award-winning cauldrons and other sacred artworks have been shown in numerous EAST and WEST Austin Studio Tours as well as other venues.
The physicality of materials, textures, and colors delight my senses. Ancient symbols, Celtic and Old Norse cosmologies, shamanism, lunar cycles, the elements, ritual, and magick call me to celebrate our precious Gaia and Great Mother through the weaving of the physical with the spiritual, cauldrons of transformation, assemblages, and other sacred artworks are birthed. Cauldrons have been used by wommin for thousands of years for initiations, rites of passage, and other rituals. I am compelled to continue the traditions of sacred art making.
