Kim Simonsson

Kim Simonsson is a Finnish-Swedish sculptor who lives and works at Fiskars Village. His world of ceramic sculptures is inhabited by children and animals. Simonsson makes his sculptures by hand and sees himself primarily as an artisan. The sculptures reflect the artist’s fascination with creating illusions, in which material is forgotten, and reality becomes something else altogether. An award-winning sculptor, Simonsson has held several solo exhibitions around the world, from New York to Paris and Berlin. His work has been showcased at international art fairs, including Design Miami/, Design Miami/ Basel, Art Paris, and The Armory Show in New York. Simonsson’s work is exhibited in renowned museums, such as the Victoria & Albert Museum, Racine Art Museum, Kiasma Museum of Contemporary Art, and Amos Rex.
