About the Artist


Karen Yungkurth Gerhardt is a sculptor working primarily in ceramic, with a special focus on equine art. Her prize-winning horse sculptures in ceramic are owned by collectors all over the world.

clarityOct1Karen’s horse sculptures average about 8″ tall and are created one at a time, by hand, using the ceramic slip-casting process. Each highest-quality earthenware china piece is glazed by Karen in her kiln to one-of-a-kind colors and finishes. They are all unique and most are created as bespoke commissions for collectors.

Recently she has ventured into dog sculpture… the first project being a Keeshond tile. Karen is also working on landscape painting in oils.


She lives in Colorado ski country near Vail.
