Kira Kalondy was born in Chihuahua, Mexico. She grew up in a small town called
Namiquipa, located on the mountain range of western Mexico called “Sierra Madre
Occidental”, in Chihuahua. The warmth, remote location and peaceful life of this
town helped define the interests that would shape her life and Art. Kalondy’s vessels
embody the dynamism of her everyday interaction with other individuals and the
energy of nature through forms that speak of fluid organic simplicity.

Kalondy is currently an Associate professor of Ceramics at Indiana State University
in Terre Haute, Indiana. Her work has been selected for exhibitions curated by Dave
Hickey, Judy Pfaff, Mel Chin, Roger Shimomura, James Surls and Richard Notkin.
Some additional exhibition accomplishments include exhibitions in The Cello
factory, London, UK. San Pedro, Tlaquepaque, Jalisco, MX. Tijuana, B. C., MX. San
Nicolas de Hidalgo, Morelia, MX. Houston Center for Contemporary Craft, Houston,
TX. SWOPE Art Museum, Terre Haute, IN. University of Central Missouri,
Warrensburg, MO. and The University of Southern Mississippi Museum of Art,
Hattiesburg, MS. Her ceramics vessels have been featured in magazines and books
such as Ceramics Monthly, Terre Haute Living and Cast: Art and Objects Made Using
Humanity’s Most Transformational Processes. Kalondy’s work is represented in the
collections of the The Daum Museum of Contemporary Art, Sedalia, MO. And Casa
Redonda Museum of Contemporary Art, Chihuahua, Chihuahua, México.
