Inspiration comes easy for Louise and Andrew Shaw, the creative duo behind the handcrafted ceramic art produced by Celtic Valley Ceramics. In fact, it surrounds them. From the dramatic Mourne Mountains and rolling green fields of County Louth to the nearby coast line, this beautiful land provides the inspiration for the colours and textures they use in their ceramics. The influence of Celtic art and mythology is also much in evidence in the creations of their products. Designs are inspired by the ancient stone high crosses of Ireland ,the Neolithic art of Newgrange and the beautiful illuminated manuscripts of the book of Kells. Their collection includes intricately carved art tiles, handcrafted bowls and plates, unique clocks, trinket boxes and house numbers, as well as an oriental range. Louise is an experienced artist and visual arts educator with a degrees from the University of Creative Arts and Reading University.
