Retail for Cultural Enterprises: Kira Phoenix Kinan

In our continuing series on designers and makers whose inspirational work is just right for museum and gallery retailers, we look at London-based glass artist Kira Phoenix K’inan. Kira is the second designer to feature in our virtual partnership with the Association for Cultural Enterprises. We invite you to browse her stand, admire this special work and consider the pieces that make museum retail special.

Kira joined the Design-Nation portfolio in 2019 and says, “Each of my works is hand-made and unique. There are slip cast ceramic bowls which I make from the off-cuts of blown glass objects, and  hand-carved glass drawings set in complementary box frames. These pieces are perfect to add to any collection and make wonderful gifts.”

Kira’s work brings together fine art and craft though her glass sculptures and porcelain works. Her artwork explores the nature of drawing, and how intertwisting each line creates works that are in a constant visual flux.
