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 the early studio work was concerned with smoke firing and raku firing sculptural vessel forms.
In 2006 Sarah started producing a range of quirky customisable ceramics giftware which is the beginning of what you can purchase today.
Sarah runs classes and workshops for adults and children from her studios.
She is a mother of two boys and wife to a hairy musician. In her “spare time” she is a Scout Leader.
My quirky contemporary ceramics with a nostalgic feel, are a hip gift to give to any home loving body. My work is all about linking memories, sentiment and nostalgia to transform an everyday object into a special gift. Each piece is hand built by me in my 250 year old studio space in Dundalk, Co Louth, Ireland.Share this
