Kristina Cooke lives and works in the green and lush coastal area of the NSW mid north coast. Kristina works with high-fire clay using a full spectrum of techniques from throwing on the wheel, slab building and slip casting, to make ceramic vessels and homewares.
The tones and textures in her work evoke the local environment, be it the boulder country of the Gibraltar Ranges or the coastal rockpools of the Solitary Islands Marine Park. Each piece is carefully crafted by hand and fired up to three times in her kiln.
