Kira Tippenhauer has a multidisciplinary practice of fine art and a design line under Kiramade based in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Born in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, she was raised by architect/engineer father and kindergarten owner/director mother. She graduated from Miami International University of Art & Design (2011) with an MFA in Visual Arts.
Kiramade® is a design line by artist Kira Tippenhauer, made by hand in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Her unique editions of slab built ceramic homeware are inspired by her tropical and Afro-Caribbean roots of Haiti. Since 2011, Kira’s been included in prestigious group and solo fine art exhibitions, many of which were reviewed in online publications by Oxford University Press, Art Practical, University of Miami, and LegalArt. Her investment in collaborative teaching and art practices can be seen in several recent projects including Marbling with Clay workshops through Open Source Art, an art program provided by Cannonball through its Wavemaker Grants.
