Alison Kay

My forms are coil and slab built using Raku clay. Layers of Terra Sigillata are applied and then burnished. After the firing, adhesive paper is placed on the surface in patterns, then smoke fired. The paper is then peeled away to reveal the colour beneath. Through this process, my aim is to create contemporary forms that have a reference to the past.

Babs Belshaw Ceramics.

Babs is originally from the Isle of Man and moved to county Derry in her teens. Pursuing a career in the arts took her to Cardiff school of Art and Design graduating in 2014 gaining a BA (hons) in ceramics. During her degree she specialized in porcelain tableware and she exhibited in many places. Graduating from DCCOI Ceramic Skills and Design Course in July 2016 Babs is now running her studio in Carnew Co Wicklow. “The movement of water and structure of ice has inspired the shape of my series of thrown porcelain vessels. The shades of blues and green perfectly compliment the crystal glazes. The forms express the variety within the natural world, inspired by every individual organism’s unique natural beauty.”

Ballingaddy Pottery and Tileworks

I design and make low and high relief ceramic tiles using hand carved plaster moulds. Because I am in a small studio I am able to create bespoke tiles using designs that are sent to me via email on a commissioned basis.

My work is influence by the movement and flow of the river. Each piece is thrown on the wheel, some are then altered. All the glazes are made in the studio. Check out website for images

Bizarro Ceramics

I am a ceramic designer from Limerick. I create wall panels and free standing high fired stoneware pieces based on urban and rural architecture. I have been influenced by architecture, both modern and ancient and added a quirky twist to create cartoon like, surreal landscapes and cityscapes.

Caroline Heyraud

My work has always been influenced by the natural world: humans, mammals, insects etc…the structural and architectural aspect within life. These life forms are amazingly elaborate and beautiful in shape and variety. I am concerned with the balance of volumes and proportions, their strength and structure. These last years I have made sculpture pieces out of porcelain and it is in some way the material driving the making process. I like the purity, the luminosity and fragility it brings to the subject. There is a certain amount of craft in my interest in attention to detail. My purpose is to create pieces, which have a sense of beauty but which also have a quality about their mass and volume and capture the essence and energy of the subject.

Ciara Campbell Ceramics

Campbell takes her inspiration from traditional toys and dolls. She finds great satisfaction in creating works that can be physically interacted with. Her quirky pieces create a sound or movement that bring the viewer some sense of nostalgic joy, transporting them back to a childhood place, with an adult twist. Campbell also creates large scale ceramic works for commission. And is an active community artist.

Ciara Ní Chualáin Ceramics

Handmade pottery and jewellery. I make everything by hand and my work is mainly thrown, even the tiny teacup earrings. My jewellery is all made with sterling silver. The landscape of Inis Oírr, the smallest of the Aran Islands, is a constant source of inspiration to me. The movement of the sea and the patterns left on the sand by the continuous rhythms of the tide are what most inspire me.

Claire Finlay ceramics

My sculpture is influenced by the passage of time and gradual decay of all things. I use stoneware and porcelain to create my fish and birds, and have recently enjoyed working with resin and other mixed media to enhance the effect of solidity and transparency.

Claire Molloy Ceramics

Claire Molloy specialises in horsehair and smoke fired ceramics. She is influenced by the Irish rural environment and likes to create simple natural looking forms with subtle colours and textures. Her love of horses directly influences her horsehair pottery. She uses hair from her horse’s manes and tails to embellish the vessels. She also uses wood shavings, straw and hay to create her smoke fired pots, all materials which are used to care for her horses. Claire also creates individual pots for horse owners, where each pot is decorated with hair from a particular horse to create a unique memento.She has an honours degree in Sculptural ceramics from the Galway Mayo Institute of Technology and has attended the Crafts Council of Ireland’s Ceramics Skills and Design Course.

Claire Murdock Ceramics - Antrim

In creating thrown, mainly functional pieces I explore architecture and form with its many interesting shapes, angles and scales. I have a true passion for teapots and I enjoy exploring and making my own unique style, having studied them and their history in depth. Making connections and bonds between the pieces in either groups or coupled pieces is important to me in the way I display my work. I use a series of processes and techniques to create pieces in a variety of clays. My favourite of those that I have recently come to work with is porcelain. I love its durable and translucent qualities and look forward to my challenging journey ahead in working with it.

My work is primarily influenced by fashion and fabric in particular Victorian costume. The extravagance of fashion, textures and patterns created mixed with my own personality as a maker creates a very unique almost Vintage style to my work. I design and create handmade original ceramics from my home in Co. Tipperary. My pieces are heavily decorated with patterns and textures incorporating a range of techniques including impressions, slip resist, inlay and coloured clay. All of my work is made in porcelain.

Dominic Punch Ceramics

My work is a representation of the cycle of life. Nature and life always leave evidence of their presence, and it is this aspect of leaving a trace through the passage of time that finds expression in my work. This cycle is echoed within the ceramic process. Clay at its rawest form is at its most natural state which signified the beginning of life. The firing process resonates with ritualistic practises which represent the end of life. Yet the trace of life remains.
