Paris Presentation - 'Making In' Hosted by Joseph Walsh Studio

April 2024

The Making In Documentary Film Premiere will take place at the Bibliothèque Nationale de France, Paris, and I am honoured to have been asked to contribute to a panel discussion following the screening.

Directed by Pat Collins, the documentary film encapsulates the spirit of the seminar held annually at Joseph Walsh's Studio in Fartha, Co. Cork.

2024 Exhibitions

In 2024 I will present new works in two key exhibitions.

The first will be my next London Solo Show with Erskine Hall & Coe in September 2024. These shows always represent a hugely important opportunity and healthy challenge for me; with the freedom to simply create my best work. I look forward to sharing images of the works when the show is open.

The second exhibition will be a collaborative exhibition with my friend and colleague Joseph Walsh . The exhibition will be held at the Centre Culturel Irlandais in October. Having spoken about working together for many years, it is a wonderful opportunity to create works that respond directly to each other.

'On Foot' Autumn 2023 - London Group Exhibition, Curated by Jonathan Anderson. Offer Waterman Gallery.

On Foot, curated by Jonathan Anderson, broiught contemporary artists into dialogue with iconic works of modern British art. Anderson’s own fashion designs for JW Anderson and LOEWE inhabit the spaces as viewers and bystanders to the works. Pieces from recent seasons have been chosen for the way in which they transform the body and give it sculptural potential. The exhibition unfolds like a walk through London, embracing the stark contrasts and unlikely juxtapositions that even a short journey through the city offers up.

Exhibiting Artists: Igshaan Adams, Frank Auerbach, Lynette Yiadom-Boakye, Hans Coper, Shawanda Corbett, Sara Flynn, Lucian Freud, Anthea Hamilton, Barbara Hepworth, Akiko Hirai, David Hockney, Leon Kossoff, Stanislava Kovalcikova, Florian Krewer, Doron Langberg, Jennifer Lee, L. S. Lowry, Henry Moore, Cedric Morris, Dame Magdalene Odundo, Walter Sickert, William Turnbull and Christopher Wood.

On Foot will be free and open to the public at 17 St George Street from 18 September until 28 October 2023.

London Exhibition Review November 2020

I am really grateful to Emma Crichton Miller for her review in The Design Edit magazine of my most recent London exhibition in Erskine Hall & Coe. It's been so difficult for people to travel to see work 'in the flesh', this take on the pots is all the more appreciated.

In October 2019 I undertook a month-long residency in Sasama, Japan.

Sasama is a beautiful place in rural Japan. The ethos behind the residency is that the participants experience real life in a rural village and I can vouch for the fact that it was a hugely enriching experience.

The residency was followed by my participation in the International Ceramic Festival which takes place every 2 years...details via the link below..

Ulster Museum - Acquisition for their Permanent Collection
