Meet The Maker: Bairbre Kennedy of Lichen Ceramics

June 1, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

To celebrate her current position as featured maker, Leitrim potter Bairbre Kennedy from Lichen Ceramics will showcase her skills on the pottery wheel. Hear about her process of working and browse her display of finished pieces, a new round tower collection on display in our beautiful craft gallery, housed in the impressive Dock Arts Centre.

Bairbre moved home to her native Leitrim to start her own pottery business after gaining a wealth of experience in London and working for some of Ireland’s most established potteries. She grew up exploring the waterways of South Leitrim on her parent’s old Guinness barge. It gave her a love for the hidden small spaces found in sleepy streams and a curiosity for the shapes, colours and life – held within its clay and riverbanks. Bairbre carried this curious creative nature into adulthood, going on to study at the much respected Thomastown Pottery Skills course in Kilkenny. From there she went to work for Badger Hill Pottery and then Judy Greene in Galway. Bairbre also spent several years in England working for Hogben Pottery, also alongside Kerry Hastings, helping her design pottery for the “Conrad” shop in London Now back at home in Leitrim and inspired by the lush landscape of County Leitrim she creates colourful and light pottery bringing a hint of opulence to functional pottery
