Kirsty Manger is inspired by her local surrounds, like the cliffs of the south east Victorian coast around Jan Juc where she lives, – these are highlighted in her Strata Series and her Shell Series, which form a beautiful reminder of the complexities of life. Erosion has been explored in the Contour series, and flora in Impressions.
Kirsty Manger is the ceramic artist behind Yum Design Ceramics working from her home studio in Jan Juc on the Surf Coast. She enjoys project based ceramic art commissions including public art, community art, tableware, architectural ceramic tile murals, pendant lighting and basins. She also teaches ceramics at her home studio.
“Each piece draws on my love of nature and is designed to create a “sense of place.” They are art works, in that they are innovative and combine interesting forms with beautiful surfaces. “
