For Hillary Kane, travel and work have led her to claim residence in several continents and innumerable countries. Inevitably, the landscape and light, culture and customs of each has impacted her own artwork and continues to be a vital source of inspiration. Educated in the United States and France, she now resides between Bali, Indonesia and the U.S. She focuses her creativity in both clay and paint, enjoying the dynamic of two very different mediums and their possible confluence. Wood-fire ceramics in particular, has led her to partake in international symposia, residencies and conferences, as well as to pioneer several wood-firing kilns in Bali. For nearly a decade, she has been directing the growth of Gaya Ceramic Arts Center (Ubud, Bali): hosting resident artists, instructors and participants from the world over, while ever continuing with the creative process. Most importantly, she and her husband have been enjoying the overwhelmingly creative journey of raising their twin daughters.
