About Michael Kifer
I attended KCC and received an AA. Then, I apprenticed with Frank A. Colson in Sarasota, FL. I learned how to manage a clay studio. This skill has helped me throughout my career. I began creating functional stoneware with a subdued glaze palate. Several years later, I attended Penland School of Craft and worked with Steve Howell.

My work has evolved to also include textured surface, for which I have received Best in Category and Best in Show at several nationally recognized show
