Internationally renowned ceramicist Claire Curneen takes inspiration from religious iconography, art history, myths and legends to craft her haunting sculptures. These are pieces that sneak up on you – quietly weaving a spell on the viewer.
Angels and saints are decorated with patterns and colour; their beauty drawing you closer. Other figures are unglazed, yet simple and elegant. But look a little closer and these figures tell a different tale. Slashed and torn, bruised and bound – these beautiful objects have more sinister stories to tell.
