Hello! I'm Marion Walsh, ceramic artist.

Welcome to my website

I have been keen on arts and crafts since childhood, and also made mud pies in my Gran's garden!

I started ceramics in 2001 and I became passionate about the craft! Since 2017, I've been working in my workshop next to my house where I also run classes.

I find that when I work with clay, time stops and I forget all my worries. I love the versatility of clay; the potential to produce pieces which are both beautiful and functional. I use hand-building techniques to make vases and dishes as well as sculptures, wall art, and jewellery.

I am inspired by the beauty of the natural world. Plants, animals and landscapes regularly appear in my work. I often use leaves to impress patterns into the clay - many from my garden. In my steampunk range, I use computer components, screws, lace etc. Everything has the potential for an interesting texture!

On this site you'll find samples of my work, some pieces are ready to sell; some are not available, but I can make similar items just for you!

If you have any questions, please contact me.

You can find my work online, on Etsy, Buy Indie and Folksy.
