About the Artist


Emma O' Toole

 My name is Emma, I am ceramic artist and nature lover, based in the west of Ireland.
I work out of The Forge Clay Studios which is a shared studio space in Galway City. 
In 2018 I created 'a little piece of my heART' as a space to share my work, to hold myself creatively accountable.
I create unique contemporary pieces which are a mix of functional and sculptural pieces.
A lot of my work is inspired by themes of nature and growth, just as clay is taken in its natural form and grows into an art piece through building and firing.
Nature is a theme that often comes through in my work, my pieces are often designed with nature in mind or adorned with images of designs of things that strike me in nature ( which is mostly bees, plants and the moon).
  in ceramics. I have always been drawn to the duality of clay, the fragility of it but also its resilience. I have always admired how it thrives and grows only after being thoroughly tested through the firing process. 
I graduated from college in Galway with a degree in fine art having specialised in Ceramics.
Note; I am also dyslexic so even though i have checked spelling and grammar throughout the website there may still be small mistakes I have missed.
Thank you for stopping by.
all my love,
