Ceramic Artist

ADAM FREW  -  POTTER   -   PORTSTEWART

My work centres on the potters wheel. Traditional eastern forms inspire me, but spontaneity as a means of personal expression is key to my work.  The exuberant action of throwing is enhanced by a continued experimentation through process, form and colour. Mark making is intuitive, sometimes relating to the form, or process of making, sometimes it’s part of a personal narrative.

 

Wood Artist and Craftsman

LYN McDOWELL  -  WOODCRAFT   -     BUSHMILLS

I offer bespoke furniture and accessories for home and garden as well as smaller defined items for visitors to take home as authentic local wood craft.  I work with reclaimed timbers when good quality examples of these become available, and with fresh timber from sustainably managed forestry, where verifiable.  My design and construction ethos is pretty straightforward – I aim for simple, well-proportioned and fit-for-purpose design, enlivened by discrete detailing, which is realised through appropriate materials choices and sturdy construction.
