Culture File, Lyric FM

In conversation with writer Eleanor Flegg during my last wood-firing (June 2012). Aired on Lyric FM's Culture File on 3rd July 2012.



I'm delighted to be part of a mixed-media exploration of contemporary fine craft at Cill Rialaig Arts Centre, Dun Geagan, Ballinskelligs County Kerry from June 3 to October 15, 2012  The exhibition was opened by Karen Hennessy, CEO, Crafts Council of Ireland.

Bricks in the Rain

 The work for our Chinese response exhibition 'Bricks in the Rain' is coming on nicely. We have the beautiful Farmleigh Gallery in the Phoenix Park, Dublin to show the work, but we're working on no budget. To try and rectify this we have set up the project on Fund It. Please do support us if you can - we will all be eternally grateful and we promise to put on a great show!

Chinese Conclusions

It's taken me a long time to get around to posting some images of my work from our Chinese residency. As I discovered, time takes on different properties with all things Chinese!

Irish Ceramic Art, China

I'm currently taking part in a ceramic residency in Fuping, Shaanxi, China. I have travelled here with 12 other Irish ceramic artists, a writer and a photographer/film maker. We are working in Fuping for the month of September 2011 to create the foundation collection for the Irish Pavilion at the Fule International Ceramic Art Museum.

Upcoming exhibitions

It's a busy week for exhibition openings. This Thursday 26th May, 'Then and Now' opens in the Hunt Museum Limerick. This shows new work by Limerick Ceramic Artists (and Tipperary!) inspired by the Hunt Collection. The work will be exhibited beside the original objects. The exhibition opens at 6pm, but continues until the Autumn, so plenty of time to catch it.

Photo of my studio from 1896/97

I was recently sent this photo of my studio by Mark Humphrys and Jackie Lindsay who both have an interest in the history of the Massy-Dawson family - once owners of the Ballinacourty estate in the Glen of Aherlow. The photo was probably taken by Rev. Thomas Enraght Lindsay in 1896 or 1897. You can see more at:
