Kirsty Gardiner

Kirsty Gardiner, an award winning artist, has exhibited throughout New Zealand for over 20 years.
Gardiner’s ceramic sculptures are influenced by her childhood, French and English porcelain, Lewis Carroll (the father of nonsense literature), natural history and the collections with which she came into contact while working as a gallery technician for Aratoi Museum of Art and History in Masterton.

“I like to think of my work as a trans-cultural mix of myths, ceramic archetypes and, of course, birds.”

Kirsty created an whimsical display of ceramics for our exhibition ‘Stories’ which drew a lot of attention and sold pieces across the country.
