Working exclusively with porcelain, Isobel Egan takes inspiration from architecture, memory and emotion.
The translucence and delicate quality of the material allow her to explore our relationships with space and how it shapes us. She elaborates: “I also investigate the interrelationships between us and the buildings we inhabit. The structures I make connect these ideas and in doing so, they reflect on the human condition. I aim to pique the viewer’s curiosity, inviting them to look beyond the surface where they may discover intimate spaces that are, at first glance, hidden from view.”
Egan’s work is featured in several permanent collections and she has received numerous awards.
She will represent Ireland at the European Ceramics Context 2018 in Denmark, 15 September-11 November on the island of Bornholm. For more information, click here.
