From Mud to Mug: Emerging makers // Sunday 15th July 3pm – 5pm
Join us for this informal chat with young and emerging makers in our Arran Street East studio. Each speaker will talk about their works, their inspirations and passions, in short Pecha-Kucha-styled presentations.
Sunday 15th July, 3pm – 5pm
Babs is a ceramic artist based near the Northern Irish town of Coleraine. She creates one of porcelain vessels and works with crystalline glazes.
El is a ceramic artist based in Dublin. Her practice is centred on the
exploration of time and materials, capturing events and processes of transformation, to explore human action, material legacy and ideas of place. She develops series of works focused on experiential making, rooted in a particular place, time or event, and current work explores ideas of material documents, embodied landscape, and how we create and describe imagined space through form.
Gayle is a potter exploring the ways we consume our food, our meals, and the ways the objects we use play a role. She makes functional tableware from her studio in Wexford.
Amy is a ceramicist whose work is inspired by both the landscape and an exploration of the ceramic medium. She works in large scale wall installation pieces predominantly made in porcelain while also creating a range of framed porcelain works inspired mainly by the Irish landscape. Amy graduated in 2016 from University of Ulster and went on to complete a year long residency within the college and since this has set up her own studio on the shores of Carlingford lough in the village of Killowen. Most recently Amy has won the Ceramics Ireland award at the RDS Craft awards in 2017 and exhibited at the British Ceramics Biennial at Stoke on Trent.
Curiosity and exploration have informed Nikita's process through collections of objects gathered from home and visits to the bog lands. Documenting the raw beauty of the bog is a significant part of her work.
Following a successful two years at the DCCoI Ceramics Skills and Design Course in Thomastown, Co. Kilkenny, Marta continues to produce her signature porcelain functional ware and large one off bowls, decorated with coloured slips at the leather hard stage and finished with clear glossy glaze.
