Siobhan set up her studio at Blackweir Lodge in the environs of Dromoland Castle & Estate in 2010.
Here she works as a ceramic artist and designer, using hand-building techniques to create her work, which involves moulding and forming the work by hand, giving every piece a unique and individual quality. Inspiration for her work comes from many sources but mainly from the treasure trove of nature that surrounds her studio.
By closely examining her surroundings, in particular nature, her work is concerned with stylising some aspects of these objects giving them a new energy and place in the world. Siobhan works mainly with porcelain as it gives her the delicate qualities she requires to execute her work. Using the translucent quality of vitrified porcelain she makes a range of votive, the t-light burning gives a warm glow complimenting the very fine porcelain.
Siobhan also makes a range of bowls and dishes that are glazed using crystalline glazes. You can view some of Siobhan’s work here or at local craft fairs organised by Clare Crafts.
