ARTIST STATEMENT

Kirsten Perry is a Naarm / Melbourne based ceramic artist. She predominately slip casts mid-fired functional and non-functional vessels that pay homage to traditional ceramics.

The bio-morphic objects she creates are initially carved from disposable materials such as foam and cardboard, then translated into ceramic. Something is gained in this translation, somehow more than the evidence of the process.

Kirsten’s process highlights texture and often exaggerates imperfection. She is attracted to flaws and vulnerabilities.
