Trained as a metalsmith, Kim creates works that utilize the history, making, and meaning of objects of utility and ornamentation. She has applied her use of steel, structure, and ornament in large-scale public art projects and commissions for public spaces. Her practice is inspired by the patterns of nature and the way objects can record and extend our lives. Cridler's work was featured in the Windows on Fifth Gallery at Racine Art Museum from July 2011-June 2012.
