Hello my name is Andrea Kavanagh and I am an emerging Ceramic Artist living in the foothills of the Dublin mountains in Ireland. I love the Natural world and am privileged to have some wonderful scenery surrounding me and influencing my practice. I work Primarily with Porcelain Paper Clay creating contemporary sculptural pieces reflecting my interest in the natural world especially its delicacy and fragility. I love to make beautiful things that inspire other people and bring them joy.
Porcelain flax paper clay is a specialised clay which has flax fibres interwoven with a porcelain clay body, those extra fibres give the clay an additional strength which allows me to manipulate it and achieve very precise forms and textures.
