Deirdre Hawthorne

Each piece is a one-off interpretation of a specific place – a sea shore, a house, a garden or a city street – and the memories these places evoke. The forms are simple but the clay is deeply marked by rolling in plants or fabric, imprinting slip or by piercing with pins, sticks and staples.

The vessels are saggar fired to create smoke and reduction effects, pushing the clay to its limits. Many are lost in the firing but the pieces that survive are idiosyncratic and unrepeatable, fragile, dark, yet inherently resilient

Deirdre exhibits with Erskine, Hall & Coe in London and with Cavin-Morris in New York.

She has shown at the Metro Show, New York, SOFA New York and Chicago and COLLECT, London.

Her work has appeared in Handful of Salt, House and Garden, Uppercase, Ceramics Ireland and Perspective magazines.
