My name is Susi C. Coveney-Conroy,
I was born in Catalonia of an English mother and Catalan father.
I came to live in Ireland in 1993 where I married an Irishman.
After the birth of our son
I started working with clay, making butter dishes.
As a friend commissioned me for one with a sheep on it I started making more sheep and so
“A Piece of Ireland” was born in 2013.
I then started making hand built mugs with sheep on them
and this evolved into throwing
stoneware mugs on the potter’s wheel.
I wanted to decorate them with trees, inspired by my morning walks with the dogs in the woods of Moycullen,
so asked my mom, Christine,
a multidisciplinary artist, to make me some drawings.
We have since developed a variety of designs, always related to nature and Ireland.

This is my first workshop
