Deirdre McGuirk

category: Ceramics   

region: Herefordshire   

Deirdre McGuirk is a ceramic artist based in Hertfordshire.

I use porcelain to make wheel thrown and hand-built ceramics; I love the silky smoothness of porcelain and the white canvas it provides for decoration. Once glazed it has a luminosity that seems to be unique to this clay. It is a challenging material to throw, but I enjoy the challenge and I think the results are worth it.

Forms have proportion and simplicity, but have a function. I enjoy food and cooking and want my ceramics to be useful in everyday life, enhancing the food they hold or flowers that they display rather than dominating. I make all my own glazes from raw materials, adding oxides in different concentrations to allow variations of similar colour. I prefer muted colours, particularly greens, blues and greys with subtle variations. I use both glossy and matt glazes, which I sometimes layer and overlap to create depth of colour and variation of texture on the same piece.
