Product Care

Production

Kim Aitken's pieces are mainly handbuilt. Handbuilding, the earliest known method of creating ceramics, is a technique in which one forms clay with hands and simple tools. This technique ensures each piece that Kim creates is unique and maintains an organic and tactile quality. Once the design and creation are finalised, the pieces are glazed and fired at 1240 degrees and are fully functional. 

Clay

Australian Midfire clay is used in the Kim Aitken by Markian range.

 

About 

Kim Aitken is an Australian ceramicist living and working in Brisbane.

"I am a ceramic artist, a maker of pots with a studio practice in the beautiful bay area of Brisbane. I have been working with clay for over 12 years and still find it a creative challenge that inspires me. Well executed work that maintains the hand of the maker is a fundamental aspect of my artistic process.
I work with Australian Midfire clay using slipcast and hand-building techniques. Each piece may be organic in shape but is made with functionality and strength in mind and has a tactile quality while still being useful.
It is my hope that each piece is a celebration of our wonderful Australian lifestyle and brings a considered aesthetic to the homes it may go to."
