With a delicate style of throwing and combined poured and dipped glazing technique, Kirsty has created a unique collection of domestic and studio porcelain. Each piece contains an element of spontaneity and individuality, with refined throwing lines combined with the incidental marks and story of the glazing technique.

Kirsty originally trained at Brighton Art College. However, her main inspiration and methods of working were developed whilst living and training on the potters’ wheel in Japan.  She became particularly inspired by the Oribe style of glazing and this has influenced all her subsequent work.
