An Urn for the person who lived life to the full, a person who embraced nature and who brought color to the lives of those they loved.
This is a very special commission piece that was created over a couple of weeks layering texture and glaze to create a truly vibrant and unique Urn.
One of a kind, impossible to make the same a second time.
In the main image the Urn is set on a circular mirror base to reflect back the light.
The Urn is top loaded via a funnel into the core of the piece with ample capacity for the cremated remains of an adult man or woman.
Eleanor is a ceramic artist working from her studio in the courtyard of an ancient country castle estate in County Wicklow.
She uses a variety of clays for her work, from grogged architectural stoneware clays for her large sculptural pieces to fine porcelain for more delicate work.
There is great freedom in that and it allows her to respond to the world around her in so many different ways.
Eleanor has exhibited nationally and internationally and has work in many public and private collections in Ireland and abroad,
including New Taipei City Yingge Ceramic Museum, Taiwan (2014,2016), IMMA (Irish Museum of Modern Art) (2013), The Museum of Decorative Arts, Dublin (2010, 2006), The National Porcelain Museum, Riga Latvia (2009), Ceramic Museum, Jingdzehn, China (2007), and the OPW (Office of Public Works) Dublin (2006).
Her work has been included in group exhibitions such as Unlimited Potential Ceramic Figures, Yingge (Taipei 2019), Echoes, Castletown House (2018), Taiwan Ceramics Biennale (Taipei 2016), Parallax Art Fair, London (2014); A Touch of Pottery, Taiwan, (2014), Transform, Farmleigh, Phoenix Park, Dublin (2011);
