Crafter of the Month!
The Ocean Pines Pine’eer Craft Club is pleased to announce the Crafter of the Month for August is Kim Perrone.
Kim has received a Bachelors of Art: Art Education from Indiana University of PA. and a Masters of Science: Instructional Technology from Western CT State University and received a teacher certification from the Dept. of Ed, State of CT, as Visual Arts Teacher-in Residence B.E.S.T. Program. Taught elementary art in Danbury, Ct. and Westerville, Oh. before retiring in 2017 as Art Teacher.
Kim says she fell in love with clay in college, and has been perfecting her craft ever since and says she still has so much more to learn. I am not a production potter and enjoy enhancing my wheel thrown forms with springs adding 3D decorative elements to the clay such as shell designs, sea creatures and organic form and altering shapes.
Currently, she is working on “shell bowls” that have hand cut scalloped edges with shells. Her work is meant to be used and is food safe. Sometimes Kim uses 4-5 different glazes on one piece.
You can see this artisan and our other talented artisans in our Pine’eer Artisan and Gift Shop, White Horse Park, Ocean Pines, MD., every Wednesday 3pm-7pm and every Saturday 9am-3pm and Sunday 10am-3pm.
