EVERYTHING BEGINS WITH A KILN
Robin Kranitzky and Kim Overstreet started their artistic collaboration in 1985 when a mutual interest in ceramics prompted them to create mixed-media jewelry to raise funds for a kiln. The unexpected success of this project launched their collaborative venture known then as Lost & Found.
Today, the Kranitzky & Overstreet studio is located in Richmond, Virginia, USA.
Deeply influenced by their beginnings as creatives in advertisement and by the art of assemblage developed by artists like Joseph Cornell, the duo has an absolutely inimitable style, composing with found objects, times, and different interpretation levels, to create complex, captivating and thougth-provoking narrative works.

Their works are in the permanent collections of many museums: Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, the Museum of Art in Philadelphia, the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Smithsonian Collection, the National Museum of Contemporary American Craft and the design Museum of Helsinki in Finland.
