Kim Norris began her journey of discovery with clay in 1991. She immediately fell in love with the versatility and endless wonder of the medium. Her art is a reflection of her devotion to her craft. Each piece is a unique display of imagination and contemplation reflecting Kim’s keen observation of the harmony of her surroundings. Kim’s studio is located in the quiet community of Keller, Texas. Her studio environment is the perfect place for her and her craft. She has created an oasis of peace and tranquility on the homestead she shares with her husband, dog, two cats, and a pond thriving with fish. It is never unusual to find Kim working in her studio with only the
quiet hum of a potters wheel to break the silence.
Kim attended the Arrowmont School of Art and the Sante Fe School of Art. She is an active member of the Texas Potters and Sculpture Guild, Dallas Craft Guild and the Texas Clay Arts Association. Kim has studied under some of the best artists of our generation, such as Pete Pinnell, Randy Brodnax, Mark Epstein, Daphne Hatcher, John DeWeese, Ron Meyers, Ellen Shankin, Steven Hill, Patrick Horsley, and Lana Wilson. Her
devotion to her art extends far beyond the one-of-a-kind pieces she has created for her clients. She also teaches pottery classes from her Keller studio. She receives great pleasure helping others pick up a hobby, create wonderful works of art, or begin a personal journey of wonder and discovery with clay. Her reputation as a knowledgeable instructor who genuinely cares about the success of her students has spread throughout North Texas.
