A statement from Kym regarding her pottery, 2012:
“I have been throwing pots for a long time. I started learning when I was 17. I have been fascinated with every aspect of the process starting with the very first time I observed a pot being formed on the wheel. I remember thinking: There is something magical happening here. After all this time I still believe in the magic. In the process of throwing there is a centering of the potter as well as the pot. There is beauty, grace, unlimited possibility, and transference of energy. There is immediate expression, co-creation, and vulnerability. A pot can expose a potter’s technical ability; but a well-thrown pot will shimmer when a potter throws with her heart as well as her hands. Throughout history pots have been utilitarian objects made to hold water or food, things that sustain our bodies. They have been made for ceremonial purposes to hold oil or ashes. I want to make pots that are mysterious, moving, timeless and magical, pots that contain food for the mind and nourishment for the soul. They are to fulfill a triple function- to not only serve the body, but the mind and spirit as well. Some people say prayers; I make pots.”
