Tamaru Hunt-Joshi makes stoneware pottery in her studio in Moycullen, Galway. Her ceramics are inspired by the wild Irish landscape. She uses natural and stained stoneware clays to produce ceramic wall-hangings and pictures. Her dramatic wall art is often left unglazed, and retains the earthy, compelling texture of different clays. Grasses and herbs collected in nearby hedgerows are often used in her work, along with layers of clay and slip (liquid clay). These layered slabs are sometimes also combined with thrown sections to produce beautiful functional items such as vases, lamps and small pots. She also make many functional, glazed items such as teapots, cups, bowls and plates in earthy colours of blues, browns and greens.

Her unique ceramics are striking and are a compelling addition to any home.
