Kathleen McGiveron

I am a ceramicist and I am openly addicted to clay. I produce work that has a strong connection to popular culture and embrace traditions in ceramics. The sculptures I create are inspired by kitsch figurines, especially Red Rose’s Wade figurines and miniatures, and include cultural icons and reference popular movements to create a narrative within my work. It is important to me that I include humor in my work and it is often impish or sarcastic and is sometimes politically charged. I also like to make things creepy and disturbing. Each series I do is very different from the previous and each explores a topic which is influenced by my passions or movements in contemporary culture which I feel I need to make a comment on.
