Hi Andrea Kavanagh here and I am an emerging Irish Ceramic Artist living in the foothills of the Dublin mountains in Ireland. I work Primarily with Porcelain Clay creating sculptural ceramic pieces which reflect my interest in the natural world especially its delicacy and fragility. Discarded pine cones, seed heads, seashells and cracked birds eggs all inspire my sculptural ceramic work and hanging installations. I love the Natural world and am privileged to have some wonderful woodland scenery surrounding me and influencing my practice.
My work evolves slowly with a combination of clay hand building and brush work with porcelain slip using transparent glaze and sometimes glaze lustres to achieve the final form. The delicate nature of the medium requires careful consideration.
Have a look in my gallery to see examples of my work and I am always open to commissions. Click Here for Gallery of my previous work
