Michael Kifer Clay Studio
My work continues to evolve while maintaining elements of color, texture and a sense of exploration and fun. Having made my living as a full-time ceramics artist I am so fortunate to go to work every day doing what I love. I am constantly observing the world and drawing inspiration from the most abstract of places and hope that my own sense of fun and curiosity comes through in my work. With more than 30 years under my belt I am still growing, changing and remain excited for what’s next.
didgeridoos and custom art
There once was a little girl who, many moons ago, wished to play a didgeridoo. Upon her 35th Christmas her dream finally came true.
As an aspiring artist without a canvas, and a new found passion with her new didgeridoo, her journey began as a didgeridoo artist when she made and painted her very first piece. One didge led to another and another creating many happy smiles on people's faces as they received her work. Treading down the path her spirit is leading her, she found her way to her first of many didgeridoo festivals, gathering and growing a family of like minded enthusiasts. Her combined passions of the didgeridoo and creating beautiful art continues today, 11 years later, as she is constantly looking for ways to please her patrons.
