Kirsten Perry – Twisted Vine
|My ceramic forms are initially carved from disposable materials such as foam and cardboard, then translated into ceramics. This translation shows evidence of my process and highlights the texture of the foam and cardboard. I often like to exaggerate imperfection, as I am attracted to flaws and vulnerabilities.
I love to investigate the relationship between elements of error, chance, anthropomorphism and humour. Traditionally, errors are discarded or covered-up but I like to challenge this aesthetic by highlighting and exaggerating errors, especially through humour. Mould making is central to my ceramic practice. This process has the ability to transform the object’s original purpose.
Twisted Vine represents my meditation practice…opening up to the good in life.
