Natasha Swan Ceramics
Natasha Swan Ceramics is based in a small studio pottery in Islandmagge, Co. Antrim. Each piece is handcrafted using the potters wheel, combining traditional making methods with contemporary designs to create beautiful and simple functional pieces.
Born and raised in a small seaside town I’ve grown up enjoying the outdoors and the beauty of nature.
Pottery was never a career I envisioned for myself, mostly as I didn’t know it existed, but rather I stumbled upon it and got hooked.
My making skillset went from strength to strength as I continued through art college in Belfast and most importantly with the Design and Crafts Council of Ireland ‘Pottery Skills Course’.
Through my education I’ve always tried to keep a balance between making and doing. Looking back to my studies I can see that time spent in my outdoors club, rowing team or general adventuring greatly inspired my creativity. Since establishing ‘Natasha Swan ceramics’ in 2019 I have continued to draw on my surroundings as my inspiration, leading to the launch of my signature range- The Neutrals. Each piece in the neutrals is finished with a simple and tactile quality reflective of the white pebbled beaches, rocky footpaths and tranquility of Islandmagee.
Each month through 2021 I have challenged myself to created a batch of limited edition mugs inspired by an important date within the month. This challenge has helped my push my making boundaries and keep creativity flowing from my small studio.
