Her shapes are either figurative featuring vivid turquoise glaze that reflects the influence of the sea and landscape; or rounded like washed pebble forms.

Kirsti begins the process with drawings of landscapes, shorelines and pebbles. Working through ideas using developmental sketches and experimentations with clay she aims to evoke the textures, forms and colours of the coast.

The pieces are then fired to stoneware temperature and feature a dry turquoise glaze. Kirsti uses a variety of textured clays that react altering the depth of colour in the glaze.
