Rachel Quinn Ceramics is located in Ballymote, in County Silgo. The proprietor, Rachel Quinn has had a passion for clay ever since she first experienced a pottery workshop during her fine art studies. Rachel has pursued this passion ever since, setting up her studio.
The effect the country surroundings have had a huge influence on her work where the mythological stories have provided a wealth of inspiration for Rachel’s figurative pieces, which are her own depiction of the old myths. The fauna has been captured recently in her new range where plants have been embedded in clay almost like a fossil of old.
Visitors are welcomed to the studio where the processes each piece must undergo will be explained to them. On certain occasions, a visit could involve witnessing the Raku firing technique after which the pieces are then expertly taken out of the kiln at 1,000 degrees.
