Centred showcases the work of 35 Irish and Ireland-based makers, selected by an independent panel, working across the spectrum of clay practice from functional and decorative vessels, figurative to abstract sculpture to ephemeral and video installations.

The selected group includes the work of established makers like Frances Lambe, Nuala O’Donovan, Sara Flynn, Deirdre McLoughlin alongside makers who are embarking on their careers, Andrew Whitelaw, Gemma Dardis, Evelina Wojtowicz.

An exhibition that includes a functioning teapot as well as a concept based installation is very comfortable in its own skin, there is no sense of selection by intellectual hierarchy only by merit, which is a tribute to the exhibition selectors as well as the makers. The vapid art versus craft debate obviously has no place here. That is very healthy.

- Les Reed



This touring exhibition began at Farmleigh Gallery, Dublin and ran in conjunction with the International Academy of Ceramics, 46th General Assembly, Dublin Castle in September 2014. The exhibition was conceived by Ceramics Ireland to take advantage of the opportunity to promote the work of makers of and from Ireland to this distinguished international audience which was comprised of makers, collectors, writers and curators developing connections for Irish contemporary ceramics abroad.

To mark the designated year of Irish Design 2015, Ceramics Ireland are bringing ‘Centred’ to CIT Wandesford Quay Gallery.
