Kim Korol Studio
I am a ceramic artist living on Mayne Island. I graduated from the Alberta University of the Arts in Calgary, AB in 2019. Much of my undergraduate work involved the exploration of creating large ceramic work. From constructing vessels using handmade bricks and tiles, to creating a pentagonal tiling pattern wall, consisting of over 100 individual hollow tiles, 1.75 meter x 1.8 meter in size. My work explores the effects of time, the forces of nature, and the efforts of mankind through the reflective lens of my prairie roots. I have an intrinsic understanding and appreciation for that way of life from growing up and living on a farm. I draw deeply on my rural memories and emotional connections.I bring to this project my experience in creating large ceramic works, as well as my understanding of the significance of water conservation and food production from my life spent on a farm.
