The ZACC is thrilled to present works by Hannah Kautto in the Blackfoot Communications Gallery throughout the month of April. Works are available for purchase, and the artist will be present at the opening reception.

“My work occupies the line between functional and sculptural ceramics. I invoke questions about identity and human relationships. In my work, I often depict the human face to captivate the narrative of human emotion and body language. I am interested in people's social norms and how we interact with one another. We live in a time with an overwhelming abundance of information. Elements of my work are highly decorated with bright colors and over-the-top sensory overload. My work is intentionally overwhelming and awkward and is a direct response to the environment around me and how I feel. I approach my work with a playful and whimsical aesthetic.”

Hannah Kautto was born and raised in Rochester, Minnesota. She received an Associate in Fine Arts from Rochester Community and Technical College in 2015. After graduation, she moved to Minneapolis, MN, where she spent two years working in a ceramic production studio. In 2018, she uprooted and moved to Missoula, MT, where she currently lives. This past summer, Hannah was a resident at the Clay Studio of Missoula. Hannah is pursuing her BFA In ceramics at the University of Montanna and is the current president of the UM Clay Guild. Hannah will graduate with a BFA in ceramics in the spring of 2024.
