Ellen Horan

I have been working with clay since the 1990’s using traditional methods like coiling and plaster press moulds to create a variety of work . All of my work is inspired by the shoreline which I walk along regularly in south Co. Dublin and in West Cork which I visit each year. I love to walk along the shoreline collecting and search- ing for unusual items and observing the wild life and their habi- tats. This is what inspires the surface colours and texture of my ce- ramic pieces, I have created a basic dry matt glaze mixed with cop- per oxides which gives an unpredictable variety of blues, greens and purples when fired to a very high temperature and is reminis- cent of the reflective qualities on surface of the water with the ever changing sky .
