Kim Sacks has worked with clay since the age of 12. Born in South Africa, Kim gained most of her formal ceramic education at the Danish School of Design in Copenhagen, Denmark, resulting in herunique style of western art which expresses African origins. The artist is inspired by what can emerge from limitless creativity, rethinking the relationship between form and function and by what it means to live in Africa today.
Kim Sacks designs clay creations for a number of different uses, from decoration to everyday use. A recent collection of works entitled 'Recent Conversations with my Ancient Continent' uses combinations of fired wire on smoky surfaces, reminiscent of African landscapes. This represents the artist's personal ideals alongside her deep connection with her home continent.
