Originally trained at Sydney College of the Arts as a printmaker, Chrystie has been somewhat obsessed with clay for the last 12 years, reveling in the medium and its endless possibilities.

The brand Cobalt & Kin was forged with the mantra "Treasures Worth Keeping" where all pieces are imbued with a feeling of the handmade. Not interested in competing with the “perfection” of machine made items Chrystie is more interested in the little details that make a work truly sing.

All works are made in a studio between high cliffs and the sea where verdant flora and fauna are a daily inspiration and functional and decorative ceramic pieces fit seamlessly into a slower, more considered pace of life.
