Inspired by the Irish Landscape
This Studio Pottery made by Michael Kennedy is Beautiful and unique. Formed Glazed and also Decorated by hand. The Colours and shapes are strong and vivid. Blues of the sea and sky. Vibrant greens of fields and trees. Browns of soil and bog' inspired by the Irish landscape as well as our Celtic past.
Michael Kennedy has created both functional pottery and also ceramic sculptures for Irish people over the last 30 years. He is one of Ireland's leading ceramic artists. His work, unique and original, evokes all that is west of Ireland. From the motive energy of the Atlantic to the delicate colours and forms of the wild flowers. From ancient structures or stone walls to the rawness of the bog land.
In colours, in shapes and also in design, he reflects all of this. Each and every piece is hand thrown on the potter's wheel. Layers of texture, markings and slips are applied, covering the piece in a maze of intricate patters and colour.
The sculpted work is further modelled to create a unique art object. Layers of glaze are copiously applied which, after firing, reflect the strong tones and shades of the Irish countryside, giving each piece richness as well as depth of colour. The final forms are vested with the skill and artistry of the master craftsman.
Michael Kennedy Ceramics has two main retail locations in Sligo town and Gort, County Galway. Workshops are also offered, mainly at their studio in Gort where they produce their products from clay to finished ceramic objects.
