I have recently been chosen as one of this year's recipients for a BC Creative Achievement Award and will be in Vancouver on 26 November, 2015 for the presentation ceremony.


Statement and bio

My work investigates form, surface, colour and systems of relationships to reconsider the wheelthrown ceramic vessel. I am committed to the tradition of wheel throwing within ceramic practice, but am interested in abstracting the familiar vessel form. How can the rim of a pot can become a wall in itself or is simply a gesture at the confluence of two planes. In some instances, the vessel’s very nature of containment is reduced to the slightest indentation, but this intimate space still remains.

The hard and reduced forms are partnered with soft, satin-matt glazed surfaces and muted tones. I use opposition to explore simultaneous balance and tension; the vessel being a space of difference as continuity. In the groupings, I think of individual pieces being brought together as notes in a chord; complete in their own right, but enriched through their relationships with one another.

Kelly completed a Bachelor of General Fine Arts in 2011 from the Emily Carr University in Vancouver, Canada is currently a Master of Philosophy student within the ceramic workshop at the ANU School of Art in Canberra, Australia.
