Ayelet Lalor feature

Great Irish Design to celebrate the Year of Craft

The Crafts Council of Ireland and Craft Northern Ireland have designated 2011 as Year of Craft. The year marks the 40th anniversary of the Crafts Council of Ireland and will be celebrated through a diverse range of dynamic events and programmes to showcase the very best of craft made on the island of Ireland.

The Interiors Directory is Ireland’s premier online destination for resourcing all aspects of interiors projects. They are proud to support Crafts Council of Ireland members and are excited to showcase selected designers who produce furniture, stained glass and sculpture. Their featured companies represent the brightest and most talented in the interiors industry. Ayelet Lalor is one of their featured ceramic sculptors.
Ayelet Lalor is an Irish ceramic artist and sculptor specialising in figurative work. Her contemporary ceramics range from wallpieces and figurines to life-size garden sculpture, including commissions, both private and corporate for awards, hotels, schools and specific locations. Humour, colour and movement are predominant in her ceramic work, while her figurative bronze sculptures resonate with a different quality, more quiet and serene than their colourful ceramic counterparts. As a figurative sculpture artist the exploration of the female figure has been at the core of Ayelet's work for many years. Working in clay, bronze and new media she consistently finds new ways to renew her interest in the human figure.
