After graduating from the Design and Crafts Council of Ireland's Ceramics Skills and Design Course 2016, ceramicist Fiona Shannon set up her studio in Portstewart. She creates pottery that focuses on the function and the social dining experience.
Over the years, she has exhibited in several galleries throughout Ireland, including the National Craft Gallery Kilkenny, The Cowshed Gallery Phoenix Park Dublin, The Blue Egg Gallery Wexford and internationally at the International Ceramics Expo, Liling, China.
She has also collaborated with numerous businesses such as artisan coffee shops and craftspeople to create unique handmade ceramics for their use, including Ursa Minor Bakehouse, Brew and Bake Belfast, Habit Food and Coffee Lounge, Two Goat's Soap and Barn Door Coffee Shop.
"The simple, elegant, and authentic tableware design and richness of colours enhance any communal dining table. Fiona says that my pots are reminiscent of quality home-cooked Irish food and robust coastal inspired designs that reflect my local wild Atlantic coastline," Fiona says.
"My range includes mugs, plates, bread platters, salad bowls, serving dishes and jam/chutney pots that are functional yet aesthetically pleasing."
