Handmade and hand painted Stoneware Ceramic Artwork for your home. Designed and made Raquel Walsh at Ballycasey Craft & Design Workshops in Co. Clare.
Each piece is individually hand made so no two pieces will ever be the same. Rolled out slabs of stoneware clay are cut out and made into wall plaques, square vases or large planters.
When I am creating a piece for creative clay I look at the clay in front of me and as I assemble it I allow the clay the help me form the shape the piece will take on. I want the edges to take on the appearance of being brittle and eroded by time and nature. The rugged weathered forms represent the erosion and fragility of the landscape due to the harsh conditions Mother Nature can create. The flora and fauna are a reminder that life can evolve and adapted to survive in the conditions it is presented with.
The Burren Collection is inspired by the beautiful, unique landscape and flowers of The Burren Co. Clare.
