Kate Klingbeil 

I make objects and paintings that celebrate movement, intimacy and emotional intelligence. The work is figurative and feminist, investigating a humanity that blooms and dies again every day. I tell myself that I should always search for pleasure, so I make ceramics to honor the sometimes mundane and sometimes ridiculous moments of daily existence.
