Kayleigh Peters (b.1987) focuses on breaking taboo subjects through the paradigm of craft. Autoethnographical craft explores the concept that craft materials can be given more agency when autobiographical experience is embedded through the material. She uses her own personal experience of the difficulties with her menstrual health to open the lines of communication. In hope that changing conversations will enable meaningful change.
Looking for authenticity in her work she focuses on making through biographical making, which focuses on gender-related issues, as a woman and a mother. Using material to embody narrative, by enveloping the deep connection to material and the body. Embedding the sensory moments of living through the contrasts of ceramics and textiles.
