karoArt *** the clay fable
karoArt is a small ceramic studio based in Dublin, Ireland where we teach pottery classes and make and display our own work.
Karo is the ceramicist who’s worked in clay since 2010. The style of her work is defined by basic forms paired with illustrative decorations of whimsical and naïve quality. There is a certain narrative to Karo’s work that is hugely inspired by fables, myths, and magical realism. Her pieces have a spark of magic and connect the real and the imaginary worlds. Her work is 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.
Avery is the teacher who joined the team this year. He’s picked up pottery skills while living in his hometown Seattle, US and becoming a member of a ceramic studio there. He is now passing the knowledge and skill to our students, letting them explore and develop their creativity.
There’s also Grainne The Granny Greyhound who brings calm to the busy studio by spending days in bed in front of the heater; and Leeloo, the collie, who will no doubt greet you with at the door with loud excited barks and swishy tail wagging.
