The artist working in Studio KIKO is Kitty Korver. She was born in 1969 in De Bilt, The Netherlands and living in Twello. Her training in the art includes, among others, a stay at the Vrije Academie in The Hague.
Since 2010 Kitty Korver makes concave felt wallobjects (with a wooden support- and suspensionsystem, also “foot ring”). Her objects often have a graphic character. Before this, she made ceramic objects for years and with both disciplines she exhibited in galleries throughout the Netherlands and in Poland and Germany. A sleek design and unconventional methods connect the two disciplines and periods. The emphasis in ceramics often was on ratio and applied design, now, in the textile the work is enriched with a more personal content.
Between 2001 and 2008 she was engaged in designing and making ceramics. The most honorable achievement of her ceramics past is winning the NVK- Prize 2007 with the “mini-safe”. From 2017 ceramics (often porcelain) returned into her work as part of her felt objects.
She is a member of kunstkring BeeKk, Steekplus, De Nederlandse Viltkontaktgroep and earlier of the Nederlandse Vakgroep Keramisten, GSA Hilversum and Genootschap Kunstliefde Utrecht.
