Originally trained at Sydney College of the Arts as a printmaker, Chrystie has been somewhat obsessed with clay for the last 15 years, revelling 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.

In March 2022, Chrystie was included in the group exhibition Art of the Garden. A joint undertaking of Michael Reid Murrunundi and Country Style Magazine.

In October 2021, Chrystie participated in the 'Cup Runneth Over' group exhibition at Michael Reid CLAY.

In June 2020, Chrystie had a sold out solo exhibition at Michael Reid CLAY in Sydney.

In 2019, Chrystie exhibited a collection of 45 vessels at Sydney gallery Saint Cloche with the landscape painter Clifford How as curated by Amber Creswell-Bell.

She also took part in group exhibition 'Endemic' in Hobart as part of the Australian Ceramics Triennial.

In 2018 Chrystie was a finalist in the Little Things Art Prize.

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.
