"This is the site of an Irish ceramist based in London. It represents a range of hand crafted fully functional design led ceramics. The current work is slip cast semi porcelain, sometimes pierced or turned after casting and decorated using enamel decals."
"Most of my work is constructed using the coil and slab construction methods. They are a combination of functional and decorative pieces. I'm fond of the raku firng technique, but like to explore a variety of things as I am still learning and developing.
