Boudoir, Kristin McKirdy, 2012 © Gérard Jonca / Sèvres – Cité de la céramique . Creator with multi talents that are found in her art, she loves organic shapes, curves, and sharp angles when they enhance curves.
She also loves archeology, most of her work is a testimony to the first ceramists, like these polished bodies which evoke the first furniture art, or these shapes which represent the “perfect simplicity” of the first ceramics from the Mediterranean civilizations.

celebrating the refinement that the artist brings back.
