About Sarah McKenna
Sarah makes pottery and tiles from beautiful soft slabs of clay impressed with textured wallpaper and stamped with words. Sarah loves the nostalgia and you can see that in all her work. Sarah wants her pieces to give daily reminders of the good things in your life
Sarah's pieces are the sum of many small details, the textures impressed into each slab of clay, the simple line drawings, the text that is imprinted with hot metal letterpress typeface, the wash of colours – some pieces also includes 18ct gold lustre.
Sarah McKenna has been developing her unique handmade Irish pottery at Bridge Street Studios since 1999. Before returning to Dundalk she studied Ceramics at Duncan of Jordonstone College of Art & Design, the University of Dundee, Scotland where she gained a Bachelor of Ceramic Design.
Sarah’s work has always been engaged in the process and In 2006 Sarah started producing a range of textured and pattern ceramics giftware which is the beginning of what you can purchase today.
When not in her in my 250-year-old studio space, she is a mother of two boys and wife to a hairy musician. In her “spare time” she is a Scout Leader in her home town of Dundalk.
