Focus on KMcGiveron

Like Stevie Wonder sang, Isn't She Lovely? I have a thing for patinas and this, though made of clay, is PERFECT. And probably warmer on your chest :) This lovely pendant is made by Kathleen of KMcGiveron.

Here in her own words is her story:

Every since I could use my fingers to create an image, I have been in love with art. I love how I can express my creativity with it. In grade 10 I took a Ceramics class because I was short a class... that was when I fell in love with the smell and the texture and all the possibilities of clay. I began working with the material in a fevered manner.

I am now entering my third year at Emily Carr University, majoring in Ceramic and Sculpture art. I have not stopped working with clay since grade 10. I mostly do sculpture work. I enjoy making wall masks and am currently experimenting with darker faces, and on Etsy I sell my tree masks. I have taken a wheel throwing class last semester and have now come to enjoy that technique with clay. I own a kiln and hope to purchase a pottery wheel some time this year.

I am now starting to sell on Etsy, and have set up a blog (found here). I plan on becoming a professional artist through gallery showings and I also hope to teach at the high school level.

Kathleen is extremely talented and you should all visit her shop! Did I mention she's generous, too? She's hosting a giveaway where you can win 1 of 2 pendants in 1 of 2 ways - either through a blog feature or through a twitter mention. Hurry, the giveaways end September 15th!
