Sarah’s Story

Sarah McKenna has been developing her unique handmade Irish pottery at Bridge Street Studios since 1999. Before returning to Dundalk she studied Ceramics at Duncan of Jordonstone College of Art & Design, the University of Dundee, Scotland where she gained a Bachelor of Ceramic Design.

Sarah’s work has always been engaged in the process and the early studio work was concerned with smoke firing and raku firing sculptural vessel forms.

In 2006 Sarah started producing a range of quirky customisable ceramics giftware which is the beginning of what you can purchase today.

Sarah runs classes and workshops for adults and children from her studios.

Sarah is a founder member of Louth Craftmark Designers Network and secretary of Bridge Street Studios.

She is a mother of two boys and wife to a hairy musician. In her “spare time” she is a Scout Leader.
