Kim "Kimmer" Adler - Lexington, Kentucky

Kim or "Kimmer" Adler as his friends call, was a master blacksmith and metalworker. He could make metal flow like liquid with intricate turns and rolls as demonstrated by his piece "Untitled" located at Sculpture Trails. Kimmer developed his style and technique while he apprenticed under distinguished sculptor Albert Paley. In 1996, Kimmer received his MFA in Sculpture from the University of Kentucky. Shortly thereafter, he lost his battle with cancer and passed away. We are very privileged to have one of his pieces at Sculpture Trails to share and inspire.
