KENNY KICKLIGHTER


Artist’s Statement

Clay is my window that allows me to see the creativity that is within me. I’ll start with an idea and make changes along the way as new possibilities occur. The end result is a captured moment of spontaneous creativity with clay being the catalyst. Each piece represents its own moment and, therefore, is one of a kind.

As I work with the raw clay or the firing, a part of my “mana'o” (spiritual being) goes into every piece. I can feel the presence of life in the clay even before it becomes an extension of myself.​​
