Madelaine Murphy lives and works in Leigh On Sea, Essex, UK, having trained in Ceramics at the Crawford College of Art in Ireland, exploring smoke fired sculptural forms, then specializing in Chinese reduction glazes on presentation ware, completing her BA (Hons) in Ceramics at the University of Ulster. Madelaine worked in large scale figurative form, completing her MA in Sculptural Ceramics at the University of Wales. Madelaine currently works in porcelain, and Raku, a Japanese method of open-air firing and travels to and from Ireland, exhibiting in both Ireland and the UK.
Porcelain is a semi translucent paste that creates a creamy, fluid finish, glazed or matt in finish. Porcelain is a strong, robust material with a long history of tableware and presentation ware. I hope you enjoy the forms designed to flatter food, your table and your home. A taste of porcelain is a luxury, with glazed and lustred surfaces in the greeting card range to express your sentiments.
Made to order
Porcelain is an investment. The forms made are with food and presentation in mind. Porcelain can be used to cook and bake in, retains heat and also keeps food cool. It is chip resistant and can withstand dishwasher pressure. For a bespoke piece of porcelain, for a celebration, or to enhance your home and style of living, please enquire about a made to order service.
Personalisation of Greeting Cards
Anything is possible. A personalised message, a button designed by you, colours and surfaces are all possible... even gold leaf or gold lustre, text, pattern or replicating the texture of a special piece of lace. It's just a matter of investment.
My studio is a teaching and learning environment for beginners to advanced to semi professional, and I welcome studio assistants.
