sinead o moore ceramics
Sinead works with porcelain and white earthenware clay to form tea lights evoking the fragility of eggshells, pushing each one to a non-uniform shape. The porcelain is kept minimal with a burnt copper edge, the translucent properties of porcelain come alive as the light dances and glows through. The earthenware are finished with various glazed interiors, the candle light bounces around the glossy interior, the natural clay exterior is sanded for a smooth finish. Sinead is a believer that ceramics are to be tactile.
