Dublin based, Michele Hannan is an artist at the forefront of her art form. She specialised in ceramics at the National College of Art and Design, gaining a BA honours degree in craft design in 1992. Following graduation, Michele travelled widely in Asia, Australia and the United States and this experience of diverse cultures is evident in her work today. She has developed an extensive range of ceramics for interiors. Her work includes sculptural vessels, mirrors, decorative bowls and candleholders. The rich combination of colours in the glazes enhances these pieces. The theme throughout is based on the Coral Reef forms and colours. Each piece is individually handmade by Michele using slabs of white stoneware clay, manipulated and modelled, then bisque fired up to 1250c. Michele uses a combination of glazes, molten glass and luster firings to complete her pieces.
