Daisy Youngblood (born 1945) is an American modern sculptor and ceramic artist. She grew up in North Carolina and currently lives in New Mexico. She was a 2003 recipient of a MacArthur Fellows Program genius grant.
Youngblood's most well-known sculptural work comprises heads and torsos of people and animals made in low-fired clay, combined with found objects (sticks, teeth, hair). Some of the heads are explicitly representational portraits (such as her 1982 study of the art dealer Richard Bellamy).
In 1999, her work appeared at McKee Gallery.
Youngblood has listed Jung and Buddhism as important theoretical influences, and has said that she is interested in "correlating worldwide religions and esoteric practices with the individual psyche."
