About Rosie McKnight
Angels Unaware is my ceramics studio located in the farmland area of Hurtletoot, in rural County Antrim
Having studied ceramics both in Belfast and in Cardiff, concentrating mainly on sculptural pieces, I then found myself gradually on a career in youth work, but always maintained a love and passion for making. From little thoughtful gifts to family and friends, demands grew; and Angels Unaware was born!
Working in stoneware and earthenware clays, my forms are heavily influenced by the countryside, coast,and a love of textiles, buttons and fastenings. Pieces are handbiult (textured, decorated and glazed) giving them their own unique story with their own depth and richness of surface. I delight in the colour and experience of the seasons and their celebrations and reflects this in my products.
At the heart of my work is the creation of treasured heirlooms for my customers to enjoy or purchase as gifts.
The name Angels Unaware speaks of faith and of my experience of life and people - the numerous surprising and inspiring meetings of folks along my journey, and of precious moments of great value often not seen at first glance.
