STUDIO OPENING HOURS - Thur and Fri 10-6pm (30 mins break at 1.30) and 10-2pm Sat


The beginning of year means a big studio tidy up, planning, reorganising and clay recycling.

Throughout the year I collect porcelain offcuts from trimming cups and bowls - they wait, stored in buckets, for the big January reclaim. The clay gets remoisturised, than carefully layered and made into new slab with dramatic marbled effects. 

The making process is a bit of a guessing game, an exciting one!

When I roll the slabs and decorate them, I can only assume the intensity and colour combinations of the finished pieces- each unique and impossible to replicate. 



karoArt *** the clay fable

karoArt is a small ceramic studio based in Dublin, Ireland , established in 2010.

Karo works with a selection of porcelain and stoneware clays to produce both functional and decorative pieces of ceramics. Her work is defined by basic forms that function as canvases for illustrations of whimsical and naïve quality. There is a certain narrative to Karo’s work that is hugely inspired by fables, myths, stories and influenced by magical realism; the spark of magic connects the real and the imaginary worlds.

karoArt's pieces are often slightly imperfect, wonky, the illustrations ragged and hasty, leaving no doubt that each piece is made by hand with some of the emotions and characteristics of the maker transferred onto clay in the process. 

Grainne The Granny Greyhound and Leeloo the Border Collie are the most important part of the karoArt assemble, supervising work in the studio and keeping Karo company.
