Kimberly Joy Roth’s education is extensive and includes an MFA in ceramics from the University of Minnesota–Twin Cities, ceramic studies at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln, Louisiana State University–Baton Rouge, and the University of Alaska–Anchorage, as well as a BS in physics from North Park College, Chicago, IL.  Her slip-cast forms have been exhibited most recently in solo shows such as Bouquet, Burnet Gallery, Le Chambers Meridian Hotel, Minneapolis, MN; It’s Plastic, Catherine G. Murphy Gallery, St. Catherine University, St. Paul, MN; and New Work, Northern Clay Center.  She is currently the assistant to the gallery director and art and art history department technician at St. Catherine University.  She has also been heavily involved as a board member and chair of the exhibitions committee of Minnesota Women’s Ceramic Artists, an organization that provides opportunities for women ceramicists.  Her abstract forms combine architecture and utilitarian ware—living decoratively on a wall, yet still functional—and draw upon feminine imagery and Islamic tile façades.  The pieces, while abstract, often times interconnect in a larger scene—a bringing order out of chaos—that is required of her mathematical instinct.
