Emma Leahy is a ceramicist from County Down in Northern Ireland.  Her work is predominately inspired by the stunning countryside that surrounds her and the tranquility that nature provides. 

 

Dawn & Dusk is a collection of work influenced by the changing appearance of wildflowers throughout the duration of the day.  These ceramic pieces embody Emma’s observation of the changes in light by using the contrasting colours of black and white porcelain.  Each flower petal is delicately crafted by hand before being fired to a high temperature with no glaze, a fittingly raw finish to the collection representing the translucency and fragility of the natural world.

 

Dawn and Dusk is a tribute to the ever changing and inspiring nature that surrounds us all in Northern Ireland.
