Kristin Nelson creates original, organic forms by coiling and pinching clay. Surfaces, softly dimpled from the pinching, reveal the artist's touch. Thin, raised, white stripes applied by hand add another layer of texture, making each piece unique.
Kristin, or Kri Kri, describes her work as "perfectly imperfect".
"Vit" , Swedish for white, is a natural name for these simple, modern style ceramics with white stripe detailing.
A Seattle native, Kristin Nelson studied weaving in Sweden then earned her degree in ceramic sculpture from the University of Washington.
