The Irish Contemporary Ceramics Collection

Thursday 22nd October 2015 - Saturday 1st October 2016

The Irish Contemporary Ceramics Collection (ICCC) is a joint project between the Ceramics programme, Limerick School of Art and Design (LIT) and the Hunt Museum, Limerick to establish an all-island collection of contemporary ceramics. It is envisioned that this collection will grow annually to reflect the richness, diversity and creativity of contemporary Irish ceramic practice.
In 2015 six leading Irish ceramic artists have contributed to enhance the collection with their work. They are: Sara Flynn, Jack Doherty, Henry Pim, Frances Lambe, Claire Curneen and Deirdre McLoughlin.
Three of the artists explore the vessel form in very different directions; Sara Flynn with consummate levels of control, Jack Doherty with an increasing sense of having left the constrictions of studio pottery behind and Deirdre McLoughlin as dynamic sculpture. Frances Lambe’s abstract sculptures are subtly adventurous explorations of hidden aspects of the natural world, while Henry Pim’s ceramic grid sculptures reflect the way that information is gathered and processed.
The project is supported by Limerick Institute of Technology, The Hunt Museum, and The Design and Craft Council of Ireland.
