Kim Mallory
Dove figurine

Kim Mallory sees special beauty in the fragments from our past. She’s combined these fragments—pieces and patterns of brick, tile and even her grandmother’s glass bowl—with words of hope, inspiration and love to create this collection.

Hometown and school: I pretty much grew up in Missouri after moving here when I was 10. (We were an Air Force family.) And I attended the University of Kansas.

Inspiration: Mostly the little details in nature—and what you might imagine about places you’d like to see someday.

Themes I’m drawn to: I try to make calm little moments and places through the imagery I create.

Best advice: “Tomorrow is a new day, and there are so many ways to see it.”

Happy place (when I’m being creative): I don’t really have a studio space but keep lots of things around me I find interesting for one reason or another—lots of memories or bits and pieces of texture. I like music. I found some old Persian music the other day—that, and a little Bollywood, is what I’ve had on lately.

Favorite work of art (so far): Some years ago, I had a chance to sculpt and paint an angel figure for a gift collection. She was serene and a little naïve, with rusted wings. I was happy with the way she turned out. I later heard someone had seen her placed in a niche in a children’s hospital chapel. It really meant a lot to me that someone might have found some comfort in her there.

When I’m not working: I have a garden I poke around in, but I really enjoy any excuse to see anyone else’s—especially if it’s on a trip somewhere. And Halloween is my favorite holiday because I love putting together the costumes for my daughter. She used to be a bit embarrassed by my enthusiasm, but we do have fun.
