May you LOVE what I LOVE!

Orla is a Visual Artist based in Cork and is best known for her unique ‘Words in Porcelain’ offering. Despite always having a love of art, she commenced studying art as a mature student in 2010, studying part time at night in the National College of Art and Design (NCAD), Dublin, while working on Construction projects in Dublin Airport during the day.


"When I had my little boy Jonah, we moved back to Cork from Dublin, where I lived for approximately 10 years, and Cork is where I dived head first into my creative world, initially setting up studio in the old hen house ('Palais du Poulet') on the family farm in North Cork. I absolutely loved that my boy Jonah was living out my childhood on the farm I grew up on. Since having Jonah, I have turned my world upside down (in the best way possible) to do what I have always wanted to do, and feel like I am living my dream.

​Only a few years ago, I went to work wearing a hard hat, steel capped boots and a hi vis vest, to oversee construction sites. This is now a distant memory, where my daily work day now involves retreating to my current studio in North Cork, to create what I love. ​'Words in Porcelain' is a bespoke offering, which is proving popular, both globally and at home. It's an ideal gift for every occasion. Porcelain is a delicate clay to work with, which when fired, has an exceptional rawness to it. We typically associate porcelain as the pristine smooth ceramic option, but here, this ideal on its head by leaving it unglazed and natural, defying the definition of perfection.
Rough to the touch, these pieces reflect a rawness which is sometimes difficult to appreciate. I like to view it as 'Perfection within iimperfection'".
