Home to The BUDE and Kelly Christopher
The BUDE are functional ceramic sculptures, large and small in the form of sculptural vessels, oil lamp burners, wine glass charms and bottle stops. Each one is hand-sculpted into a unique and playful whimsical form or figure. They are little helpers so to speak. The vessels offer you a fantastic way to hold and store your treasures. The burners help light the way. The charms help you and your friends prevent wine glass mix up (-: The stoppers keep your wine, vinegars, and oils beautifully and safely stored until next time.
Hi :) My name is Kelly Christopher, and art is my life... mind, body, and soul.
I have been creating since I was a little girl growing up in New England. I would draw for hours, mostly figures and people I knew. Charcoal and pastels were my favorite.
As I grew older, I became more and more curious about other art forms - paint, fiber, clay, wood, metal, etc. I had to try them all!! After receiving my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Massachusetts @ Dartmouth, I gravitated toward sculpture and mixed media. The majority of my artwork incorporates the human figure in some manner. I find the human form so intriguing and beautiful :)
