Clay Art

Functional, Dysfunctional, and Wearable Art - inspired by the art and culture of ancient Asia fused with regional Alabama heritage and folk art.

Growing up as an only child, she was encouraged to experiment with and appreciate art from a very young age. Traveling throughout the Black Belt counties, taking photographs with her mother for work, Kristin developed a love and appreciation for this rich, cultural region and its people. As a teenager, she spent hours watching her neighbor and renowned artist, William Harris, paint at his Possum Bend Store, sharing stories and tips on painting along the way.

Kristin graduated with a BFA in Ceramics/Art History from the University of Montevallo, where she gained the skills she has used to succeed in her career - from the opportunity to construct and fire three large kilns, to learning to hang gallery exhibitions and developing a passion and enthusiasm for Art History. Kristin spent eight years as the Curator of Collections at the Hermitage Museum & Gardens and as Ceramics Instructor at the Hermitage Visual Arts School in Norfolk, Virginia. This period of her life forged a love of ancient Asian pottery and ceremonial bronzes, American Arts-and-crafts furniture and architecture.

After moving home in 2009, Kristin was re-introduced to many Black Belt artists, who have re-instilled that real art is in the soul and cannot be taught. The people, stories, traditions, art and history of this rich cultural region have inspired Kristin and shaped her desire to share the treasures of the Black Belt with the world. In addition, the opportunity to work with regional folk artists and living legends has reinforced her love for her home, and has heavily influenced her current body of art.

She is the owner of Possum Pottery & Jewelry and teaches art at BBTCAC.
