“If I choose to pick up this small white cup with its single chip near the handle, will it figure in my life? A simple object, this cup that is more ivory than white, too small for morning coffee, not quite balanced, could become part of my life of handled things. It could fall away into the territory of personal story-telling: the sensuous, sinuous intertwining of things with memories. A favoured favourite thing”.
Edmund De Waal
The Hare With the Amber Eyes (16-17)
Kir's work is often about the beauty and meaning that can be found in the everyday, in the mundane and the utilitarian, and in the unremarkable corners of home. It is an exploration of household objects and familiar surrounds and of the history, humour, weight and significance of ordinary things.
