Kelsey Floyd is an award winning ceramic artist based in Tampa, Florida.
Starting pottery in early 2020 at the beginning of the pandemic, pottery was a way to connect with the peace and harmony within during a very trying time personally and worldly.
Self-taught, Kelsey curated a studio space in her home and got lost, or more-so found, in the endless self-discovery of this art. She believes art and creation are intrinsically woven in the deepest and oldest parts of our humanity and can be tapped into when we come across the right muses to envision it and mediums to release it.
That is the ethos of her art; parts of the mind that can’t be formed into words, but can be sculpted through her hands and shared with those it tethers a connection to. Into things we can hold, adorn, and decorate life with.
Inspired by the natural and ancient elements of our world, her vessels incorporate free flowing curves and shapes while also combining that with the precision and restrictions of chains. Displaying a juxtaposition of unique and refreshing contrasted with the feeling of being unearthed and lost in time; her vessels are intended to connect with a sense of familiarity to who we are.
