by Sandra Cole
Sandra's work in influenced by the surrounding countryside, a love of nature and the amazing structure and detail found in plants and how they are formed. Her interest lies in the challenge to recreate natures detail in clay and glaze which are themselves natural products with their own individual traits and constraints.
Spending time along the west coast inspired a love of the sea and a desire to capture its power and majesty in my more recent work.
All of Sandra's pieces are handmade using a variety of clays, white earthenware, terracotta, and porcelain. she makes a variety of framed and unframed wall art as well as functional ceramics. She also uses stone ware and porcelain as the different clays all have their own properties and nature making clay such a wonderful material to work with.
ABOUT THE ARTIST

I am a ceramic artist based in Terryglass Co. Tipperary. Following a lifelong interest in ceramics I was delighted to be excepted on the ceramics course in LSAD Limerick and graduated in 2013.
My degree gave me the opportunity to set up my studio the following year. I felt very fortunate to be able to do something I love every day.
