TEÄN KIRBY | TEÖNA POTTERY CERAMIC ARTIST
Teän Kirby is a ceramic artist based in Portishead; her work is strongly influenced by the coastal and woodland surroundings of her home and studio base. Her ceramic pieces are decorative and sculptural ranging in size from those suitable for a small window sill to large garden sculptures.
Most of Teän's inspiration is drawn from the natural world, in particular: birds, rocks, wave formations, fish and the night sky. Often, she will combine two natural elements, which can clearly be seen in sculptural pieces such as "Waverider" and "Pebble Birds"; are these the choppy waves often seen off Battery Point, or could they be fish jumping? Are those balanced pebbles or birds?
