About Kirsty

London based Kirsty studied Painting and Printmaking at Glasgow School of Art. Inspired by the qualities of late eighteenth-century English slipware pottery, her ceramics are an exploration of gesture, form and colour.

Experimenting with various shapes and textures, Kirsty’s work is strongly influenced by her background as a painter. Employing traditional decorative pottery techniques alongside mark-making usually associated with abstract expressionist painting, she imagines clay as her canvas, creating a beguiling array of lush, layered surfaces.
