Necklace - AJ Ceramics
AJ is a Limerick-based ceramicist who works predominantly on the potter’s wheel. Their work is informed by their love of traditional craft methods and processes, as well as the sense of community they feel with other craftspeople no matter their chosen medium. Their forms are simple and functional, with an emphasis on glazes that enhance the experience of their pieces without overpowering their chosen clay. Particularly in the case of porcelain, the clay is allowed just as much pride of place as the glaze, the two fundamental ceramic materials working together to create something unique and beautiful.
Necklace – The beads for these necklaces were individually crafted by hand using a modern recipe based on ancient Egyptian Paste faience beads. This is a self-glazing material that is durable and comfortable, though these pieces are recommended to be ‘special occasion’ pieces rather than everyday wear for the safety of the piece.
