Claire Molloy Ceramics

Claire Molloy specialises in horsehair and smoke fired ceramics, in addition to her functional tableware.

She is influenced by the Irish rural environment and likes to create simple natural looking forms with subtle colours and textures. Her love of horses directly influences her horsehair pottery.

She uses hair from her horse’s manes and tails to embellish the vessels. She also uses wood shavings, straw and hay to create her smoke fired pots, all materials which are used to care for her horses.
