As part of Ireland’s Year of Craft the exhibition will reflect the diversity and excitement of contemporary craft practice and importantly, assist in securing an elevated place for ceramics in the national consciousness. The core objective of this exhibition is to bring contemporary ceramics to a wider audience as well as building on the language of contemporary clay in Ireland.
