Kim is the first to make a crass joke, the first to call out your awkward remark, and the first to give you a hug in a room filled with people you love. The type of hug that almost brings you to the ground because the weight of the world was missing while y’all weren’t spending time together. Then she’ll make you a cup of tea and want to hear every small detail about your life. The train ride down to Portland, how you got that small rip on the knee of your jeans, she’ll start to tear up a little, then make fun of your haircut -- thats why she's so lovely.
I’ve never had a sister. I grew up with a younger brother. Kim is the most real and perfect example of what a sister would be in my life.
Everything she does has a subtleness to it with a slight touch of imperfection. She’s the type of human that keeps you wondering what she’s thinking- the little kid that follows the older kid around at the park.
Imperfections become quirks that highlight her quietness then show her over all image. I think, self-referencing where that quite stops and the quirks come out. Those details are in everything she does and most importantly in her work. She is a ceramicist. Covet & Ginger is her creation that brings all those subtleties to a common ground. Delicate, quirky, simple, and elegant ceramics.
We met in Portland, OR. Like most of the people I’ve come to love over the years, she was introduced to me by a dear friend.
Her honesty has always been there. As if she trusted me before we ever spoke to each other. We seem to dice the complexities our world is dealing with then brashly cut to a joke that is untimely, with a moments pause of “oh shit, we shouldn’t of said that.”
Above all, I want more people to know her. To understand the real intention of a person that so blindly and intentionally loves those around her. I want you to sit down for a cup of coffee or whiskey or left over noodles from our favorite Vietnamese shop in Portland, OR just to hear what she has to say. Hopefully, this little bit will introduce you to her.
