Kelly Jean’s work reminds people of things they have found on the floor of the forest, something they have touched in a tide pool or a single cell organism once viewed under a microscope. Her ceramic pieces aren’t any of these things in particular. They are small abstract objects that reference many biological entities without being any one specifically.
Kelly Jean uses many household utensils as well as handmade textiles in her ceramic work. This is the start for many of the intricate patterns. Each piece is then hand carved, burnished,washed, waxed and sanded. After the building process is complete each piece will then go through multiple kiln firings and will be hand painted with oxides.
This Ceramic Wall Installation is comprised of 17 individual pieces, each hung separately. Each piece is unique. Variations in pattern may occur from piece to piece.
