Meet some more Talented Artists Joining the online CRAFTfest extravaganza in September 2012 (TEAL Group Blog Post 3)

 The Pot Factory
by Ryan Connolly
My Work Begins and ends with my passionate exploration into clay and firing. Using a unique blend of Stoneware and terracotta clay, I throw my pots on a traditional kick wheel. Like the potters of medieval England and Asia, this allows me to work intuitively with the clay. As important as the making and firing, it is essential that I use locally sourced materials in my glaze. This guarantees all my pots are individual and unique. Firing is the critical final step in any ceramic making process. I fire the kiln to cone 10 using gas and wood, controlling this requires knowledge, intuition and sometimes instinct.   My time spent with potters in India developed my skill as a potter, but more importantly my 'eye' for a good pot.I am always striving to achieve the unachievable, the 'perfect pot'. After Graduating from the university of Sunderland, Ryan has shown his work in New Designers, London, The British Ceramics Biennial, Stoke-on-Trent and in Auroville, Ponidcherry, India.

Custom made, hand made, decorative wooden letters for children's bedrooms, nursery, gifts, weddings, birthdays or table centre pieces.

All letter sets are hand made by myself. I love creating name and letter designs. Letters are wooden and painted white or black. I use a range of high quality scrapbooking papers and embellishments to decorate the letters, that I hand pick and source once I know the look the customer is hoping to create. Customers can send me a link or picture and I can match letters to bed sets, curtains, art etc.
