“Kiff Slemmons’s jewelry is creates as much for the mind as for the body. Drawing on the intellectual and literary traditions of surrealists such as Marcel Duchamp, Rene Magritte and Man Ray, Kiff creates multiple layers of meaning in her poetic compositions by taking the commonplace out of context and elaborating on its metaphorical significance. The emphasis is on content and expression rather than decoration or formal, abstract concerns. In the tradition of contemporary metalsmiths like Ramona Solberg, Ron Ho and Robert Ebendorf, much of Kiff’s work involves the thoughtful relocation of found objects which, by their very presence, reference something beside the piece of jewelry at hand. The images she creates are inseparable from the wide-range of non-precious materials with which she chooses to work. THe results reveal the wide travels, and scholarly reflective temperament of Kiff Slemmons herself.”

– Mija Riedel, “Uncommon Means of Measure, the Jewelry of Kiff Slemmons”
Metalsmith Magazine, Summer 1993
