Her work has been compared to that of George Ohr, manifested in "a penchant for crumpled shapes, twisted and pinched openings, and making . . . 'no two alike.' " Butterly's work consists of ornately decorated porcelain sculptures that suggest feminine personalities.

Her first solo exhibition was at Tibor de Nagy Gallery in New York. Kathy Butterly has won the 2009 Joan Mitchell Foundation Grant for Sculptors and Painters.
