Kip O’Krongly uses earthenware to produce a full line of functional ceramics. The surfaces of her pieces are highly decorated using a number of techniques including, sgraffito, die cut stencils and decals of her own design. The Exxon Valdez disaster occurred when she was a child and has had a lifelong effect on her. The relation between food and energy and the links between man and nature inspires and drives the imagery that appears on her work. O’Krongly uses images drawn from the petroleum and agricultural industry to drive home her message of concern for health of the planet. She uses slips and underglazes to create the imagery then finishes the piece with overglaze.
