Kirsty Jay Anderson
Kirsty graduated from Grays School of Art in Aberdeen and the last ten years of making textiles has helped to inform her new direction into ceramics. While attending classes in Edinburgh and self study over the last few years, Kirsty’s transition from cloth to clay has been challenging, exciting and ever changing. Clay will be a lifetime of learning and one that she loves to engage with every day.
Her ceramics are inspired by nature and the path it leaves behind on the landscape. The vessels themselves are simple shapes taken from Kirsty’s interest in the aesthetics of past objects - milk churns, chemistry beakers and enamel wear. These shapes will continue to inform each other as she grows and develops her practice.
