Kristin Henderson

"From a very young age I have been fascinated with the ideas of creation and destruction, spending hours collecting various items, such as a flower that had just died, or a seed that was starting to sprout. As an adult I examine it all on a conceptual level, in conjunction with the human need to collect. To me, diversity is the key to all of these concepts and I employ media as eccentric as my interests - stoneware glass, porcelain, bronze, terracotta, steel, stone, found objects and chemicals.

My works range from tiny partially destroyed wheel thrown pots to large-scale installations that echo the natural world. In the process, I have learned the importance of abandoning inhibitions and need for control, allowing the natural urge to both create and destroy reveal the way."
