"From my heart and hand to yours"
I am Karyn Bradford and Kayinga Design is my business. Here you will find an eclectic mix of pottery, lamp work and fused glass, garden art, musical instruments and possibly even some hand painted textiles. Most of what you see is unique and one off. There is something very enriching and tactile about articles made by hand. For the maker there is the sense of achievement in mastering new skills and making something that is beautiful, useful and sometimes conveys a message. Being creative is good for my soul and I feel that what I make carries with it a piece of me - from my heart and hand to yours.
I am a strong believer in community and the power of conversation and so you will find that the craftwork displayed here comes with a bit of a story about the work and what inspired me to make it.
