The creation of forms using hand building techniques, with minimal use of tools, ables Kelly to further the idea of clay as a natural material. In a visceral conception, her hand in clay produces a powerful finished piece which captures a moment in the process. The nature of her methods are embodied in the work, and each serve as narrative to the other. All of Kelly's functional pieces are organic and fluid which makes them comfortable and exciting to use on an everyday basis.
