Michelle Butler is a Design Graduate from Falmouth School of Art, Cornwall, where she specialised in Ceramics. In December 1998 she started her business in the Omagh Enterprise Centre from where she relocated, in August 2005 to a barn at her home. Michelle's stoneware ceramics have developed a style which reconciles
Primitive Celtic influences with contemporary designs and forms.
The pieces are all handcrafted using textured stoneware clay and
are finished with a rich metallic oxide producing a depth of lustre.
A large variety of glazes are used to apply colour to specific areas
of pattern and relief creating a rustic earthy ambience that makes
each piece a unique gift from Ireland.
Celtic Stone, Iron Stone and Jewellery Collections are available in
outlets throughout Ireland and abroad. Celtic Stone draws its
influence in strong ancient Irish legacy while Iron Stone includes
more contemporary designs and forms; Ironstone also features
larger pots and lamp bases which are coil built and hand carved
and are available as commissioned pieces.
The Michelle Butler Jewellery Collections boasts as amalgamation
of these styles in a range of smaller distinctive jewellery items.
