KIMMY CANTRELL

Largely self-taught, Kimmy discovered his artistic vision in high school. His art teacher, Curtis Patterson, admired his command of clay. Kimmy’s very first piece, a clay vase, landed on display at the Atlanta Board of Education Building. Still, he never considered making art his livelihood. Instead, he studied business and spent 12 years in management. Almost 20 years later, “I just decided one day that it was time to reconnect with the clay so I picked some up and sculpted a vase.“ Kimmy’s vases evolved into bowls, and bowls into faces. And, well, he hasn’t stopped creating since.
