Maolán: A rock partially submerged by the sea.

Glazed ceramic. 11x8 inches. 2022.

This piece is part of my ongoing series, Focail Farraige, based on old Irish words related to the sea. These words hold more than definitions — they are a window into a different relationship to nature and the unknown. Using clay (my primary medium) to connect more deeply and creatively with Irish (a language I am learning, slowly) has expanded my appreciation for both forms of expression as I aim to help keep these words and the perspectives they come from alive. In the series, I combine abstract and figurative techniques – creating narratives more like snapshots of a dream or childlike fantasy than literal representations – to fit the mythological and often whimsical flavor of the words.
