Kira Tippenhauer has a multidisciplinary practice of fine art and a design line under Kiramade based in Miami, Florida. Born in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, she was raised by architect-engineer father and kindergarten owner mother. She received her MFA in Visual Arts from Miami International University of Art & Design (2011).
Kiramade® is a design line by artist Kira Tippenhauer, handcrafted in Miami, 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 group and solo 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 supported by the Perez Art Museum’s Brick x Brick Program.
