Sasha McVey

Sasha uses both porcelain and black clay to create exclusive sculptural forms, influenced by her natural surroundings, exploring the seaside, forest and coast of her hometown in Glenarm. Sasha’s sculptural work’s reflects the qualities which she discovers and observes in her location which are often overlooked, fascinated by the smooth rounded touch of a pebble, the white rock face of a limestone cliff, to the curves and contours of the landscape itself. Working in porcelain and black clay she draws upon their natural qualities enhancing porcelains smooth, fine, polished qualities to the contrasting rich, textured surface of black clay. Her exclusive sculptural forms echo the fleeting moment in nature to evoke a memory and a second glance at the overlooked landscape and environment which surround us.


Fiona Shannon

In a search for our identity and in order to know ourselves, we seek definition from those who went before us. Those who raised us, cared for us, taught us all we know. As children we worship, adore and idolise them, as adults we strive to preserve their memory. These memories of the people and their life stories are often embodied in heirlooms passed down from generation, worn down by the patina of many hands in days gone by. This body of work focuses on these personified heirlooms driven by personal experiences of old family stories and oral traditional. The domestic element found in these non-functional tea bowl forms and intricate spoons is reflective of the household environment where these stories originate. With the precious porcelain body the oxides and smoke finish adds many layers to the domestic form leaving the thrownware looking old, worn and rusted. The delicacy of these pieces is suggestive that the aged form should not be touched but preserved as signified by the top shelf which is just a little out of reach. By preserving these objects we learn to appreciate them, holding these memories frozen in time.

Frankie Quinn, Iconic Photographs of Northern Ireland Now Available

Over the last three decades Frankie Quinn has worked on a variety of topics. "My work has brought me on many occasions into the thick of events and incidents that have marked the conflict in the north of Ireland for nearly 30 years. It has also taken me on several occasions to other areas of conflict around the world, to Bosnia and Turkish Kurdistan in the mid 1990s and in 2002 to Palestine and Israel. Some of the images have been used by newspapers, magazines and journals. I have also had the good fortune to be invited to exhibit my work in Britain, Europe, Australia and the USA."
