SUCH A PERFECT CLAY
From deliciously wantable pots, to somewhat saucy figurines, and creations that make you marvel at their intricacies, it’s amazing what some people can do with clay. Touchstone, currently at Farmleigh Gallery in the Phoenix Park, celebrates some of the best by 36 of today’s Irish makers.
Check out work from established ceramic geniuses including Frances Lambe, Cormac Boydell, Sara Flynn, Jack Doherty and Grainne Watts; alongside an early chance to see the work of those just embarking on their careers, such as Cathy Burke, Caroline Getty and Aisling McElwain. Fall sufficiently in love and you can make them yours too, with prices ranging from ¤ 45 to ¤ 10,000. The exhibition also celebrates the 40th anniversary of Ceramics Ireland, so alongside all the objects of desire, you can delve into the organisation’s history. Touchstone will also tour to the National Craft Gallery in Kilkenny later this year. Until 30th September. farmleigh. ie
