Victorian Craft Awards

Kristin Burgham — 'Moment', 2021,

$2,200
Industrial ceramic production methods inspire my practice. I map and cast found objects then use stained porcelain to create a new narrative. During extended lockdowns when our lives were ruled by deaths, ICU and infection rates my objects reflected cool clinical forms and flesh tones.

Kristin Burgham is Naarm/Melbourne-based emerging artist working primarily with high fired porcelain. Imbued with colour, scale, and memory, Burgham draws from industrial ceramic production processes to hand-build objects which she uses to create assemblages. Working with found objects Burgham explores and builds on the narrative of the object and that of its anonymous maker.
