Kristin Burgham — Large 'Loving Cup' in Snow, Sculptural Vessel


Loving Cups date from medieval Europe; Kristin's Loving Cups are based on the two-handled vessels found on bric-a-brac tables. There are so many variations to be found, each indicating trends of the time in which they were manufactured, containing so much information about the era. This is the tall size in the Loving Cup series. Due to its construction the piece is not water tight. It can be washed in warm water.

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 works result in assemblages imbued with colour, scale and memory. Her works acknowledge and reflect on industry and its social history.

Burgham studied Fine Arts at RMIT and graduated in 2019. She has exhibited Internationally including during Milan Design Week in 2024. Her works are held in the public collections of National Gallery of Victoria, Art Gallery of Ballarat, Shepparton Art Museum and Yarrila Arts and Museum. She will undertake her first artist residency in Southern Italy in 2024.
