Kirsten Perry has a background in Industrial Design, Fine Art (Gold & Silversmithing) and Multimedia.
Japanese culture and wabi sabi aesthetic are a major influence on Kirsten’s work which embraces the transience and natural flaws of materials. She is keen to explore and push the nature of clay, setting up a framework of playing with the material that allows for an element of chance and serendipity to enter.
Kirsten’s work investigates the relationship between elements of error, chance, anthropomorphism and humour. Traditionally, errors are discarded or covered up but she likes to challenge this aesthetic by highlighting and exaggerating them.
