Jim Kelleher has worked with a wide range of mediums from performance art, digital media, graphic design and of course, ceramics. An Alumni of G.M.I.T in Sculpture, he went on to graduate with a BA Hons degree from the University of Ulster, majoring in Sculpture & Lens based Media. He completed the Ceramics & Pottery Design Course with the Craft Council of Ireland in 2004.
The thrown pottery he produced as part of that programme were functional ware with mottled and copper red stone ware glazes. While Jim continues to throw ware it has now become more decorative in nature. The work is inspired by the unique character intuitively drawn out on the wheel, with a focus on accentuating the asymmetry of each piece and retaining the malleable nature of clay in the finished piece.
