Artist Statement Kelly Stevenson makes emotionally driven, figurative ceramic sculptures. Currently, her work is fueled by her personal experiences and recurring themes of transition in her life. She is curious about how people, as complex beings, exist and survive in dynamic environments. Kelly pairs mixed media materials with her ceramic figures and seeks to communicate on a visceral and intellectual level with the viewer. She hopes to trigger emotional, dynamic displays of expression in the viewer as a means to bridge individual and universal experience.
