Activism: Kip O’Krongly

I have been stuggling to find the words.
I have been struggling to find the images.
I have been struggling to find the feeling.
I have been struggling to find a way to relate my concerns about food through functional ceramics.

In my plight to find a happy balance I scoured the internet for artists working in the same mindset. Kip O’Krongly has been doing just that. Before I muddle her work with my thoughts please take a look and form your own so we can talk about it later!

(Food) Activism: I have been dwelling more and more on our North American food crisis, an eminent monster ravaging our schools and streets and homes giving our children shorter lifespans and depleting our lands and cultures. But there is hope and it comes in the form of loving and sharing food- not a task so far from the core of all ceramic practices! I am excited to look at the links there in- in our minds, and daily lives, at our tables, in our ovens and communities and computers.
