Panama and the colors and textures of the rainforest are never far from Marie-Elena Ottman’s thoughts. The Kentucky artist, a native of Panama, calls her clay sculptures “metaphorical self-portraits,” bringing together the two cultures that shape her life. She has a BFA with an emphasis in ceramics.
Her work is published in the Larks book “500 Animals in Clay: Contemporary Expressions of the Animal Form”, which featured the sculpture “Quarrelers/Peleones” on the inside cover. Her work was also featured in PBS/KET “Kentucky Life”, PBS/WKYU “Mainstreet” and “Bluegrass and Backroads”. Marie-Elena’s work is exhibited locally and nationally.
