Robert Kibler’s work is primarily made with low fire terra cotta clay. The functional pieces he creates are made using several methods including wheel thrown, slab built and casting. The surfaces are either decorated with very complex optically challenging designs or with images from nature rendered using the majolica technique. He has also completed a number of tile and mosaic projects.
