About the maker:
“I trained in ceramics in the University of Ulster and the University of Wales in Cardiff and work from my studio in Northern Ireland.
My working method is intrinsically connected to the act of making and the endless experimentation with the changing state of Parian porcelain; both in its raw and fired state. My wide palette of techniques, which include casting, hand-building and printing, are continuously being challenged and developed. Multiple firings accentuates the porcelain’s satin, marble-like quality when solid and the delicacy and translucency when thin.
