Kenton was featured in a two-person show entitled I Would Have Ripped It Out and Kept It Forever along with artist Nora Normile at 80 Washington Square. Her work was also featured in the group show, -Scapes, at the Commons and Rosenberg Galleries in New York.  

Upon graduating, she spent time as a Pottery Apprentice for the Rochester Folk Art Guild and a Production Painter for Mackenzie-Childs.  In 2017, she started Crackpot Crockery, a small business dedicated to offering the handmade pottery she has designed and crafted.  Through her work and through teaching, she hopes to share her love of clay and all things nerd culture.
