Kelsey Cronin-McKenna is a ceramicist based in Southern New Brunswick and operates under the name of Kels In The Studio.
Working primarily with mid range stoneware and glazes, she approaches her studio practice with the intention to create meaningful work that helps enrich life's everyday moments.
Drawing inspiration from her childhood home near the Rocky Mountains and New Brunswick's forests and nearby Atlantic Coast, Kelsey's work is a reflection of the organic shapes and textures found in the natural world. Known for her love of wavy lines, "squiggles", Kelsey incorporates these shapes into her work to create a signature style with a playful feel.
Through the tactile experience of holding and using Kels In The Studio wares, Kelsey hopes to inspire a sense of comfort, presence, and an appreciation for the beauty that surrounds us.
