’My pots are made with great pleasure for you to enjoy with the people you love. Their design is carefully chosen to be extremely functional and suitable for any style of house, appealing to both genders and able to stand the test of time.
I constantly absorb the beauty of my natural surroundings and while my hands work the clay, thoughts about mankind and our life on earth arise. I infuse my pots with these thoughts by using symbols and patterns embedded on the clay. These symbols and patterns speak to us at a subconscious level of ancient wisdom. My pots bring the essence of the natural world into your home and are made to withstand the ware and tear of everyday use.’ Vale Van Der Merve.
Vale is from South Africa originally but we are lucky she and her family relocated to Ireland a few years ago. We love having her beautiful work here in The Narrow Space.
