Lucy O Gorman Pottery

Email Address:

Lucy O’Gorman designs and creates her unique ceramic pieces by drawing inspiration from her rural studio near Slane and the historical landmarks that scatter the Boyne Valley. Lucy’s pottery, ranges from functional crockery and tableware to sculptural and commissioned pieces. She is widely known for Neolithic representations on her pottery and is very popular with local customers and international visitors. She has innovative and unique pieces to reflect light, ranging from large candle holders to models of Lawrence’s Gate and the Hill of Slane. She also appeals to the mass market with everyday tableware including the much sought after 3-D sheep range. Lucy is a founding member of the hugely successful Slane Craft Collective and also travels to craft fairs in the region. She has developed her own techniques that include firing electric and gas kilns, the use of Japanese Raku firing and the incorporation of glass in her pottery to give her work a distinctive and vibrant effect. Her love of excitement and need for the unpredictable comes through in her more abstract pieces. Lucy, and her pottery, has featured on both television and print media including Joe Duffy’s Local Heroes in 2013 and the Aer Lingus Cara magazine.
