Kim Murton has been making sculpture and functional ceramics in her home in Vancouver, WA. for nearly two decades. Working mostly with low-ﬁre terra-cotta clay and colored slips. Her work ranges from small round heads that ﬁt in your hand to larger coil-built, abstract ﬁgurative totem pieces and large 3' tall heads. Her colorful, cartoon-like pieces are inﬂuenced from pre-Columbian and Mexican pottery, mixed with training and work history in animation and a love of comics. Long ago Kim studied ceramics at The School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and a study of ﬁlm and animation at The Cooper Union School of Art in NYC. After graduating she worked in the animation industry on staff for RO Blechman, and later for JJ Sedelmaier, Jumbo Pictures, and Tony Eastman. A move west led to studio work and teaching at The Firehouse Pottery Lab in Boulder, Colorado and eventually a move further west and study at Oregon College of Art and Craft in Portland, Oregon. Her work can be seen in and around Portland, OR, Seattle and Bainbridge Island, WA
