KEVIN IRWIN - CLAY ARTIST
"As a native Californian, I have always been inspired by animals, color and the perfect balance of artistic beauty I find in nature.
"At 18 years of age I moved to Birmingham Alabama and discovered a whole new world of inspiration. Historic architecture, the southern natural world of plants, animals and insects became a fascination and continue to be great passions. My home and studio are both restored historic buildings in downtown Birmingham.
"I work in various mediums including flame worked glass, ceramics, jewelry design and construction, pen, ink and water color paintings.
"Practicing in different mediums allows me to explore many types of styles, materials, textures and dimensions. I have attended summer workshops but am primarily self taught.
"If I had to define how my Art effects my life, I would say that it leads me to beauty, joy and laughter which I want to share with others And, it is the language I speak best.
"If my work inspires you to this, then we are on a journey together and that not only gives me great joy, but makes it all worth it."
