- Kim Murton’s ceramic sculptures blur the line between abstract and figurative. Color and pattern and the surface of the clay are all important aspects of her work. And of course, humor and wit are ever present. Murton is interested in repetition and the subtle differences that can happen. Murton coils and pinches terra cotta clay, working from the bottom up and in profile. The pieces are painted with colored slip and clear glazed. Imagine a blue face with orange lips a pointy nose and buggy eyes. Over the years, Kim Murton of Vancouver, Washington has developed a distinctive style that blends her passion for clay with her experience in animation. This unique combination delivers a powerful punch that is quirky yet delightful, peculiar yet intriguing.
