Featured Artist

This year's featured artist is Kirsteen Holuj. Based at Westbury Art Centre. www.kirsteenholuj.co.uk/

Kirsteen creates ceramics which demand attention.  The distinctive shapes, colours and textured surfaces  of her work excite the senses, inviting further exploration.

“The manipulation of clay in the hand and its response is always an exciting experience, the way it can take any form or texture you chose to express – it is like no other material. My inspiration comes from everywhere there is a texture – plants, beaches, seeds, rocks and all landscapes and regular visits to the Isle of Coll in the Inner Hebrides have also had an influence on my work. It is a unique place where all types of weather can happen in one day; bad weather is dark and dramatic and yet when the sun eventually appears the light and colour can take your breath away. It is not always instant or obvious but all these elements direct my work somehow, with a texture, colour, a shape or glaze. “ - Kirsteen Holuj
