“I draw inspiration from medieval art, statuary, Egon Schiele, iconography. My high-fired figures, constructed from small pieces of wafer thin porcelain, convey a sense of the fragility of life, of the fleeting moment. In my work I aim to imbue gentleness and delicacy by disassembling the human form into a patchwork of overlaid pieces. Every piece I make has emotional impact. I’m working with the human condition- the strength, the suffering, the fragility and the transient fleeting beauty of the human form. Life impacts and leaves its mark.”

Melissa Kiernan is a British Ceramicist/ Sculptor. She was born in 1966 and studied Ceramics at University of West of England, Bristol. Her sculpture is held in many private collections including that of Mette Gaugin. Her medium is high-fired porcelain and stoneware.
