Kirsten Lyon: Bits & Pieces
Kirsten Lyon connects elements of play and scientific theory by making ceramics – a weighty medium derived from the natural elements of earth and fire – float. While the sculptures she has created are not conceived from direct source material, they are derived from basic microbiological forms and concepts.
The environments in which Lyon places these sculptures are designed to activate the pieces, transforming them into elements of play, and removing them from the static form that ceramics traditionally take. Kirsten also used simple devices to add kinetic and sonic elements to the work, allowing the pieces to oscillate, swirl, bob, cluster and even reverberate.

My mission is to spin gold out of waste, plastic for example, a new
“natural resource “. Here is where mission goins responsibility. Our covenant
with planet earth, ( our principle partner ) is to give her a return on her
investment. I share this perspective with Delphine, the goal being, to change
the world one bottle at a time.
