GET TO KNOW KRISTIN GAUDIO ENDSLEY
Q: HOW DO YOU BALANCE WORKING BETWEEN DIFFERENT MEDIUMS? DO YOU GRAVITATE TOWARDS ONE MORE THAN ANOTHER?
A: My ceramics practice is a methodical process. I repeat the same steps and I know the outcome. During my education in clay there was more invention and artistic play, but now it is based on learned skills and technique. There is serenity to my ceramic work. It is not as emotional. The flipside of that is my artwork is emotional...cathartic. My art is "an unstructured and open-ended form of work; that expresses emotions, feelings, and vision." I flow between these two practices when needed.
Q: WHAT DOES BEING AN ARTIST MEAN TO YOU?
A: An artist means devoting time to conceptualize creative work. "Artists are the individuals who have the desire and ability to envision, design, and fabricate the images, objects, and structures we all encounter, use, occupy, and enjoy every day of our lives."- Pamela Sachant
Q: DO YOU HAVE A FAVORITE COLOR PALETTE TO WORK WITH?
A: I gravitate towards pinks and deep blue/greens. The sky and the ocean. My artwork is often colorful.
