Ruth Power [of DANU Ceramics]
Ruth Power specialises in handcrafted, designer ceramic homewares, wall art and jewellery. All of Power’s products are made by hand in Dublin.
Power says: “I wish to add an alternative selection to the mass produced items that surround us. My design ranges combine earthy, organic yet refined and contemporary aesthetics that display well in both urban and rustic settings. I am inspired by travels, nature, wanderlust, antiquated trade routes and Ireland. In my designs, echoes of ancient artefacts from diverse cultures can be detected – Celtic, Roman, European, Oriental and Mesoamerican – and yet each piece is unique. I use deep, luxurious glazes and enrich my designs with patterns created from found objects obtained whilst traveling, such as antique textile stamps and fallen coconut shells. Every one of my pieces has a story!”
This solo exhibition is part of Solo Irish '16.
