KimberlyRorick's Shop Announcement

I'm glad to have you visit my Etsy shop and I hope you enjoy what you see! Everything is HANDMADE BY ME in my studio at my home in Northeast Indiana. I have been a full time clay artist since graduating from college in 1999.

I discribe my work as being a stylized interpretation of people, both men and women. My recent work came about from a themed exhibit at the coop, Orchard Gallery, where I am a member, called “Art Becomes Her”. I began by making tall, slender women with stamped bodices using symbolism to make each one different. As I continue with this theme I find myself experimenting with facial expression and gesture to help define the people giving each one a unique personality.

I work in porcelain clay, which is the whitest, purest clay there is. Every figure is fired three separate times in the kiln. First, as a normal bisque firing after the piece is completely dry. The second time after the color has been applied, then the third time using a black wash defining the textural and linear surface of the figures and their detail - thus adding more depth and character of highlight and shadow.

I am excited to be moving in this new direction and I look forward to see where these new figures will lead me.

You can also find my work at the Orchard Gallery in Fort Wayne, IN. where I have been a member since 2000. Check out our web site at www.theorchardgallery.com.
