About Ayelet

I grew up in West Cork surrounded by artists, camping under the stars, and dancing around maypoles. I was surrounded by strong, independant, free thinking women, in sharp contrast to the American southern belle tradition that my mother grew up in. This has influenced my work greatly, with the female form being central to my artwork.

I’ve worked as a professional clay artist since 1999. I’ve always liked to get my hands dirty, and the physical act of mark making, digging with fingers, smearing, smoothing and tearing are intrinsic to my creative process, and continuous research and exploration have resulted in more experimental ways of working.
I also really enjoy the challenge that comes from working in different mediums: clay, cement, bronze, and have built sculptures from materials as diverse as chocolate, icing and cement!

When I open the door to my studio each day I feel a sense of relief and calm. Sketches hang from pegs, portraits peer down at me and colourful screen prints of feet and bathers jostle for space. Ceramic and concrete sculptures fill other available surfaces. I create on every scale, from a tiny pair of legs to towering garden sculptures.

In 2015, due to a medical condition, I closed my studio. Now with a home studio and renewed energy, my artwork has diversified to include painting, print and a new venture designing headwear.
