Kerry Hastings
Kerry Hastings International ceramic artist Kerry Hastings makes ceramic vessels which explore themes such as harmony and discord, colour and form, silhouette and contour. It is her childhood in Scotland that informs her work now, both the landscape there, but also her parents who met at Edinburgh Art College; one was a painter, the other an architect. As with most people, it is early childhood that is the biggest influence (for good or bad) and this is certainly the case for Kerry. The ancient tradition of handbuilding using coils of clay is a method which allows her infinite analysis within the confines of the vessel. By making the work with narrow bases and wide undulating rims she imparts to each piece an energy and motion that is reminiscent of certain natural forms such as the swell of a wave, a bird in flight or the contours of rolling hills. Kerry enjoys making these sculptural functional pieces and, as there is no such thing as symmetry in nature, she makes her pieces asymmetrical which bestows a sense of movement and flux; this is further enhanced when viewed as a group.
