OUR STORY & PHILOSOPHY

Collaborative Ceramic Artworks by Artists Colette Gambell and Kate Jerry

Since 2018, we have been passionately creating clay works centred around the theme of Home. Our house collections have featured decorative ceramic wall pieces and art, which have evolved from initial 2-D artworks into stunning 3-D sculptures. Each piece is meticulously crafted with unique decorative finishes, employing a variety of techniques including scraffito, underglaze and slip, impressing, printing, carving, glaze and lustre decoration. 

The name 'Aes - Sídhe' originates from Gaelic and represents the profound understanding that we are an integral part of, rather than separate from, the land we inhabit. In Celtic legends, the natural world takes centre stage, and according to Celtic mythology, elements of nature possess their own spirit and presence. Mountains, rocks, trees, rivers, and all things of the land and sea are believed to hold a mystical essence. Rivers and streams often serve as a boundary between our world and the Otherworld.

'Aes Sídhe' or Aos-si refers to a supernatural race that exists in Irish, Scottish, and Manx mythology. These beings inhabit an invisible world that coexists alongside the human realm. The Otherworld is typically elusive, but various mythical heroes have visited it either by chance or after receiving an invitation from one of its residents. Access to this realm is achieved through mist, submerging into the waters of pools, lakes, or the sea, or by crossing the western sea.

The concept of an otherworldly or mystical island that is our home, is the starting point of all our work. We strive to infuse a sense of magical beauty into each piece we create. In this particular collection, we have utilised the shapes of houses as an allegory for this enchanting theme.
