Kristin Burgham — Alchemy Bottle 'Leaf Ribs'
A porcelain sculptural vessel featuring rough edges extending beyond the object in a leaf rib colour block finish.
Kristin Burgham is a Melbourne based ceramicist working with industrial ceramic production processes and found objects. She works with discarded objects to explore and build on the narrative of both the abandoned object and evidence of its maker. Her hand-built porcelain objects result in assemblages imbued with colour, scale and memory. Her works acknowledge and reflect on industry and its social history.
Burgham has studied ceramics in Australia and Hong Kong and her work has been acquired by Shepparton Art Museum for their public collection and is also in private collections. She completed a BFA at RMIT in 2019 and won the RMIT Ceramics Association judges choice award in 2019.

This installation is an exploration of discarded and found objects from a domestic and architectural point of view. Some of the works are vitrified and others are not. This is indicative of the way we keep and dispose of objects in our lives. A constant flux of ephemera carrying the resonance of skilled hands, knowledge and stories.
