There's something about Brisbane that breeds incredibly creative ceramics artist. Witness the cool creations of Ky Curran. Ky's functional works of art are all about making the daily life of the owner more lovely.
Ky's work runs the gamut from simple, beautiful vessels (like the wheel-thrown twin tea bowls, above), to thought-provoking pieces (love the "trouble" gun brooch) to meditational (sweet Mother Mary tiles are a modern shrine of devotional art). I particularly love the tongue-in-cheek Briz Vegas series that is becoming very hard to get your hands on. Ky's ceramics are wheel thrown and her jewellery is decorated with a variety of handmade glazes, Japanese tissue paper and decal images.
