Kim has spent several years studying art and design and she currently concentrates on creating ceramic jewellery. The natural qualities of clay allow for experimentation and development of techniques to create the detailed textures and intricate designs. She enjoys the challenge of working on a small scale.
Her work is greatly inspired by the colours, shapes and textures of the natural world such as broken
shells found along the seashore, the shape of a lone tree or a single leaf. Inspiration also comes from old fabrics, buttons and brooches, items that bring a feeling of sentimentality and nostalgia.
Pressing objects such as shells, fabric and beads into clay to create unique surface textures and adding colour with a combination of slips and glazes, Kim aims to produce unique wearable jewellery that the wearer can bring their own meaning and appreciation to.
