Every year the The Oconee Cultural Arts Foundation (OCAF) hosts a Georgia Pottery Invitational event called Perspectives. This highly anticipated event showcases the who’s who of ceramic artists in Georgia. To be invited to participate in Perspectives is a BIG deal. Some may even say it’s a life-changing event.
This year, one of the featured artists is Spruill student Keok Lim or “KB” as she’s known around the ceramics studio. KB was born in Singapore and worked as a dentist before moving to Atlanta in 2001. KB began making pottery and sculpture 10 years ago while homeschooling her autistic son and draws inspiration from nature and life experiences. “Using clay and porcelain as media, I enjoy experimenting with different techniques and the process of unfolding my vision into a story,” KB says.
“Yes It’s Clay” is the title of her show at Perspectives and by the photos below you can see why.
Perspectives opens on August 31 and runs through September 16. Take a road trip to Watkinsville to see KB’s beautiful work and the work of several other talented ceramic artists. Trust me, it’s worth the trip!
