About Rachel Quinn
Rachel comes from a fine art background where she studied painting and ceramics. Having completed her studies and fallen in love with the medium of clay she spent the next 6 years working in pottery studios. She now lives in county Sligo where she set up her studio in a rural setting inspired by the landscape mythology and ruggedness of the North West there is nowhere she would rather be
“Living in the rugged north west of Ireland it is impossible to deny ones relationship with nature, time and history. As a person you develop an acute awareness of the seasons, of being part of these changes and a sense of belonging to the land, and from these rhythms new and old come a steady steam of inspiration.”
Rachel has designed a range of hand built Ceramic pieces, which are full of character and originality. The artist designs, creates and fires the work herself, this she finds allows her designs to respond and grow appropriately with all the aspects which inform the development of her pieces.
