The exhibition "Kristin McKirdy - Céramiques"
now open at the Bordeaux Museum of the Decorative Arts presents the public with ceramic works created by Kristin McKirdy
during her four-year "Résidence d’artiste"
in Sèvres – Cité de la céramique
- along with a selection of her earlier creations offering a complete overview of the artist?s production over the past twenty years.
transforms ceramic, a primitive, informal material, into art; her works evoke the simple forms of early Mediterranean civilisations and pay homage to the tradition of Sevres, but like the ceramic products used in architecture
, they are the product of on-going research.
The pieces made in Sevres were produced with the aid of about 120 artisans from the Cité de la céramique
, from the mounters-chisellers who assembled the different elements to the chemists who came up with colour formulas created specifically for the artist.
