Kim never studied ceramics in college but instead learned by taking adult education at the Worcester Center for Crafts. She has been making pots since the eighties and only recently found time to sell them. Hand building her preferred method of making because she enjoys putting pieces together to make a form that is NOT round. It is like putting a puzzle together, Kim says. Once she designs a piece she is happy with, she save the pattern developed so that she can repeat the process. She often adds surface design using stencils, stamps or some found texture. The resulting pots are either for food, flowers or fun.
