Kildoag Pottery was founded by Ursula Mc Givern and Adrian Brothers. Both hands-on-potters whose current work is focused on the development of unique pieces using alternative firing processes such as Naked Raku, and Saggar firing.
Most of the work is wheel–formed using a mixture of clay bodies which will withstand the thermal shock of the firing process. The thrown forms are simple contours which are left to dry before coating with several layers of Terra Sigillata slip and polished to create a smooth surface prior to bisque firing.
During the Raku process the four elements of nature, Earth, Fire, Air and Water integrate combining clay with glazes and oxides to produce something unique and exciting. The pots are fired one at a time, each having it’s own individual character and decoration that will never be repeated, ensuring an absolutely unique product and style.
